LONDON Aug 13: India has doubled the weekly flights from 13 to 30 flights, after a public outcry over high fares on India-UK routes from 16 August. This move will help bring down fares on this route substantially and would bring benefits for flyers, most of them are students.

“Fly non-stop from Mumbai to London with Air India, 4 times in a week! Before you plan your travel, please ensure eligibility regarding entry into your destination,” Air India said in a tweet on Thursday.

Apart from this, Air India has announced non-stop flights between India and the United Kingdom from next week. The national carrier earlier had said that it will operate 13 weekly flights connecting London with six Indian cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Amritsar, and Kochi from 16 August to 1 September 2021.

Reports say that mid-September air fare prices are set to fall to normal levels.  According to Money Control website some airlines are offering India-UK flights at Rs 19,000-Rs 34,000 in mid-September.
