Air India will operate its new A350-900 aircraft twice daily between Delhi and London Heathrow from 1 September.

The route will mark the long-haul international debut of Air India’s flagship product and will see the airline introduce its Premium Economy class for the first time on the route, with 24 wide seats in a dedicated cabin.

The A350 will replace the Boeing 777-300ER and Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner on 14 of 17 weekly flights. As a result, an additional 336 seats will be available on the Delhi-London Heathrow route each week.

The deployment of the A350 means Air India will have upgraded 90% of all its flights to Heathrow. In April 2024, the airline began deploying Boeing 777-300ERs on its Mumbai-London Heathrow route, with upgraded cabins and inflight entertainment systems and the resumption of its First-class service.

This makes Air India the only carrier to offer First class travel between the two cities and between the UK and India.

CEO and Managing Director Campbell Wilson said: “The deployment of our flagship A350s and the B777s with upgraded cabin interiors to London Heathrow marks a significant milestone for Air India. It demonstrates our commitment to elevating the travel experience of our guests to truly world-class standards and to going beyond just meeting customer expectations as we continue to renew our fleet.”
