Passengers on Air India’s flights to Tokyo will soon benefit from travelling on state-of-the-art Boeing B777 aircraft.
The airline will introduce the aeroplane on the route from October 25th, while the B777 will also be used on all of Air India’ seven westbound destinations.
This means that travellers on flights to Paris, Newark and Toronto will benefit, while routes to New York, Chicago, Frankfurt and London are already serviced by B777 aircraft.
B777s are especially designed for long-haul travel and offer passengers increased comfort thanks to improved seats and roller-type therapeutic leg rests.
Elsewhere, the Indian national carrier will launch additional flights to Riyadh from Mumbai and Delhi, while a daily non-stop flight to Muscat will be introduced from Chennai.
The airline’s cheap flights subsidiary, Air India Express, will begin daily flights to Muscat from Kozhikode, which is an increase from the existing four-times-weekly service.
Earlier this month, Air India became the official carrier for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, which are being held in Delhi.
