Air India (AI) guests flying between Dubai and Delhi can experience the A350 aircraft in its bold new livery. The airline deployed its brand new A350 aircraft on the Dubai-Delhi route on 1 May 2024. Operating as AI995/996, the aircraft departs Delhi daily at 20:45 hours, arriving at 22:45 hours in Dubai. The return flight departs Dubai next day at 00:15 hours and arrives in Delhi at 04:55 hours. All timings are local. With this, Air India becomes the only carrier to operate the A350 between India and Dubai. The A350 seats on the Delhi-Dubai route are available for reservation on Air India’s website and mobile app or via travel agents.

Parminder Pal Singh, Regional Manager – GMEA, Air India, shared, “It is a proud moment for us at Dubai that Air India deployed its brand-new A350 aircraft on the busy Delhi-Dubai route from 1 May 2024. This is the first Air India A350 International Destination. Now, Air India becomes the only carrier to operate the A350 between India and Dubai. Air India’s A350 aircraft features 28 private suites with full-flat beds in business (class), 24 seats in a dedicated Premium Economy cabin offering extra legroom and other enhancements, and 264 spacious seats in economy (class).

Singh added, “We invite all to experience this new beauty which will ultimately be the leading Air India fleet and would fly on ultra-long-haul routes ex India. Big transformation in progress for Air India to become a world-class airline with an Indian heart.”

Air India, a Tata Group company, started inducting the A350s earlier this year, which have since operated flights within India for crew familiarisation and regulatory compliance purposes. Air India currently operates a total of 72 flights a week to Dubai from five Indian cities, of which 32 flights are from Delhi.
