Air India's First Flight to Copenhagen

Air India celebrated in style today at the launch of the airline's first flight to Copenhagen from Delhi on a brand new Dreamliner aircraft.

The service had an 80% load factor and was crewed by an all-female flight crew.  Part of the celebrations included the lightening of a ceremonial lamp to mark the inauguration and flower garlands festooned checking and gate areas. 

Commenting at the ceremony for the launch of the new services, Air India chairman and managing director Rajiv Bansal said: “With this new service, we expect to cater to the majority of traffic between Copenhagen and Delhi... We have also received good cargo load for the sector.”

The new route is operated with a state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, which is expected to fulfil a growing need in the Scandinavian market for low-cost travel to India. 

The new service to Copenhagen is the 11th non-stop European destination for Air India and it now operates to 44 international gateways.
