Air India lancerer non-stop Amritsar-Birmingham, UK-service

Air India planlægger at starte nonstop-tjenester mellem Birmingham og Amritsar to gange om ugen, der starter tidligt i 2018

Air India tilføjer en anden direkte rute fra Birmingham Lufthavn (BHX / EGBB) for at komplimentere den daglige rute til Delhi fra Storbritannien

Den nye rute, der skal starte tidligt i 2018, er en to gange ugentlig rute til Amritsar i det nordlige Punjab-område, hvilket gør Birmingham til den eneste britiske lufthavn, der betjener destinationen direkte.

Det gyldne tempel, den helligste Gurudwara i sikh-religionen, ligger i centrum af den gamle murede by, hvilket gør det til et populært rejsemål for pilgrimsrejser og turister.

Air India har stor succes siden lanceringen af ​​flyvninger fra Midlands hub i august 2013, den daglige Delhi-tjeneste har transporteret næsten 500,000 passagerer i de fire år, den har opereret.

Pankaj Srivastava, Director and Board Member of Air India said: “We are delighted that we are able to announce that we are planning to commence nonstop services between Birmingham and Amritsar twice a week, starting early 2018, recognising the consumer demand from the Midlands’ region to Amritsar, Punjab. Air India is always very sensitive to the needs of the consumer and is pleased to be connecting the two cities thereby adding a new city pairing for Air India’s expanding global network with the only non-stop UK Amritsar service.”

Birmingham Airport Aviation Director, William Pearson added: “It is great news that we will have nonstop connections to two Indian cities. With over 200,000 British-Indian people who travel to India to visit friends and relatives, and for tourism and business interests, this additional destination shows the large demand within the region for non-stop Amritsar services from the Midlands. Air India has been a successful partner for over four years and offers great connections to India with services operated by the new Boeing 787-8 ‘Dreamliner’ aircraft.”

West Midlands borgmester, Andy Street sagde: ”Et af de mest almindelige spørgsmål, der rejses, når jeg taler med sikh-samfundet i vores region, er at de og deres familier ikke er i stand til at flyve direkte til Amritsar.

”Helt siden har vi arbejdet med Air India og Birmingham lufthavn for at undersøge, om vi kunne indføre denne direkte service for de 135,000 sikher, der bor i West Midlands.

"Jeg er meget glad for, at dette starter tidligt næste år - jeg ved, at det vil blive modtaget godt modtaget og en velbrugt service."
