Air India Begins A350-900 Aircraft on Delhi-Dubai Routes

The Tata Group-owned carrier now flies a daily service between Delhi and Dubai, with the aircraft featuring a three-class cabin configuration with 316 seats.

Air India began international operations with its A350 aircraft on Wednesday, operating the maiden Delhi-Dubai flight, and aims to operate the wide-body plane on additional overseas routes in the coming months. The Tata Group-owned carrier currently operates a daily service between Delhi and Dubai, with the aircraft offering a three-class cabin configuration with 316 seats.

Air India announced on Thursday that it began flights on the Delhi-Dubai route using its A350-900 aircraft on Wednesday and is now the only airline to use the plane between India and Dubai.

According to a source, the airline plans to begin operating the A350 on the London route in November. The airline will also fly the aircraft on extra overseas routes.

Air India began inducting A350 aircraft this year, and they are now being used for domestic flights as well. The airline has placed an order for 40 A350 aircraft, with at least four already in its fleet.

Currently, Air India provides 72 flights each week to Dubai from five Indian cities, with 32 departing from Delhi. The Airbus A350-900 is a long-range passenger aircraft that can seat 300-350 passengers in three classes with a range of 15,000 km.

According to Airbus, the A350 is powered by two Trent XWB turbofan engines developed in close collaboration with the powerplant’s manufacturer, Rolls-Royce. The Trent XWB employs cutting-edge technology and materials, leveraging over 70 million hours of in-service experience with previous Trent versions in airline operations.
