Celebrating its 60th year of flying to Singapore, Air India is adding another Boeing 787 ‘Dreamliner’ aircraft on its Singapore-Chennai-Mumbai sector from next month.
“The Indian national carrier has seen a big increase in passengers on its latest aircrafts from Singapore to India,” said Country Manager Nirbhik Narang.
“In June, we had more than 90 per cent passengers on our daily flights from Singapore to India,” said Narang, underlining the increase in travellers flying by Air India.
Air India’s 125-aircraft fleet includes brand new Boeing and Airbus planes including B777, A321, A320 and A319.
Air India had launched ‘Dreamliner’ on its Singapore-Delhi daily flight on March 20, 2014 and would be upgrading aircraft to ‘Dreamliner’ on Singapore-Chennai-Mumbai daily flight next month, he said.
