Air India Resumes Direct Flights Between Delhi and Copenhagen after 3-Year Hiatus

Air India, owned by Tata Sons, has announced the resumption of direct flights between New Delhi and Copenhagen starting March 1, 2023. The service was previously suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The announcement was made by Danish Foreign Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen during the India-Denmark: Partners for Green and Sustainable Progress conference, which was held during the visit of the Crown Prince and Princess to India.

Air India will operate three flights a week on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. The flight will depart from New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport at 1:30 p.m. and arrive in Copenhagen at 10:20 p.m. after an 8-hour and 50-minute flight. According to Air India CEO Campbell Wilson, the airline will focus on long-haul and business fliers as well as leisure passengers.

Air India is the only airline that offers direct flights between India and Denmark, and the resumption of this service is expected to boost tourism and strengthen ties between the two countries. This move comes after Air India launched non-stop services from Delhi to Milan earlier this month and direct flights between Bengaluru and San Francisco in December, as well as new flights between Mumbai and JFK airport in New York on February 14.

The resumption of direct flights between Delhi and Copenhagen is a significant step towards Air India’s goal of connecting passengers from all over the world. The airline continues to expand its network, and this move is expected to increase the number of visitors between India and Denmark.
