Air India starts Oz routes from Delhi to Sydney, Melbourne
Air India's Delhi to Sydney and Melbourne
Air India began its assault on the India to Australia market (and potentially the lucrative ‘kangaroo route’ from Europe too), when it began the only direct flights between the two countries, starting Delhi (DEL) to Sydney (SYD) and Melbourne (MEL) on 29 August. The 787-operated service touched down at Sydney first, before continuing on to Melbourne, and then returning from the Victoria state capital to Delhi — it will fly this routing from the Indian capital four times weekly. In addition, the non-aligned carrier will fly Delhi-Melbourne-Sydney-Delhi thrice-weekly (Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays). Take a look to see how Sydney Airport’s fire truck water arch (FTWA) performed in the inaugural FTWA scoring feature – launched this week by anna.aero.
