Air India is to launch a three-times-a-week flight between Delhi and Vienna from April 6.

Announcing the launch of the flight, Pankaj Srivastava, the airline’s Commercial Director, said the flight will see Air India add to the 58 weekly flights to five European countries that it currently operates from India. The airline will use a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft to operate the flight which will fly on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

The airline’s decision comes close on the heels of Austrian Airlines announcing that it will be withdrawing its five times a week Vienna-Delhi flight from April 5. Speaking to newspersons, Ashwani Lohani, Air India CMD, said that the airline is also looking to launch flights to new international destinations including Madrid, destinations in Africa and Washington DC.
