by Traveleads | May 23, 2019 | In The Air Latest News

  • Airline is to resume Mumbai service after four years
  • New daily route to launch from London Heathrow from October 2019
  • Flights go on sale from Tuesday 28th May 2019

Virgin Atlantic is relaunching flights between London Heathrow and Mumbai, India, with flights on sale from Tuesday, 28th May. The first service is set to commence on 27th October 2019 and will complement the airline’s long established route between London and Delhi.
The daily service will not only enhance a vital link between India’s commercial centre and the UK’s capital, but it also provides seamless connections via Heathrow between India and the US. The new flights will depart and arrive Heathrow in the morning to align with connecting flows to and from US.

The Mumbai flights will be operated on Virgin Atlantic’s Boeing 787-9 aircraft, offering customers the airline’s award-winning Upper Class, Premium and Economy Light, Classic and Delight cabins. Virgin Atlantic offers a full on board service in each of its cabins, providing complimentary food, drink and over 300 hours of entertainment across films, TV and music channels. All of the airline’s 787-9 are fully Wi-Fi enabled, allowing customers to stay connected throughout their flight.

Juha Jarvinen, Executive Vice President, Commercial, at Virgin Atlantic, commented;

“2019 marks a significant period of growth for Virgin Atlantic and I’m delighted that we’re continuing to expand our route network once more, by returning to Mumbai. Until recently we’ve been able to serve this important market through our partnership with Jet Airways, however, since Jet Airways has sadly suspended its operation, we now have an opportunity to provide alternative options for our customers and meet this demand.”

Together with partner Delta Air Lines, Virgin Atlantic offers customers unrivalled choice of U.S. destinations and the leading transatlantic service from London Heathrow. Co-located at Terminal Three, both airlines offer over 28 daily flights between London and the USA.
