Air India arrives in Moscow with 787 Delhi operation
- Air India started its only route to Russia on 18 July, when it commenced the 4,311-kilometre link between Delhi (DEL) and Moscow Domodedovo (DME). The Star Alliance carrier has flown to the country in the past (including Delhi-Amritsar-Moscow Sheremetyevo-Birmingham with 707s in the 1980s), and this time it will fly its 256-seat 787-8s four times weekly on the airport pair. The airline will only face indirect competition on the city pair, with Aeroflot flying daily A330 services from its Moscow Sheremetyevo hub. See how Moscow Domodedovo Airport’s FTWA compares to the others sent in this week from around the world.
