Air India looking to expand route network in Europe

With India projected to become the world's third largest aviation market by 2020, Air India is exploring a number of new destinations in Europe as part of its international route network expansion plans. The airline at present is carrying out a feasibility study on two new routes - Barcelona and Madrid - which it may commence next year, provided that they are found economically viable, Air India Commercial Director Pankaj Srivastava said. Speaking to reporters after Air India's first non-stop flight to the Austrian capital arrived in Vienna from New Delhi, he said that the national carrier may look at enhancing the frequency of the new service to five times a week. Vienna is Air India's eighth destination in Europe, where it will operate three times a week with a Dreamliner B 787-800 aircraft. Air India had announced the launch of non-stop flight services to Vienna from New Delhi following the Austrian Airlines' decision to opt out of the route from April. Courtesy: The Economic Times
