There is now a daily service linking the two cities with complimentary food and drink and more than 300 hours of entertainment onboard the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. Customers can also stay connected throughout their flight as all of the airline’s Dreamliners are fully Wi-Fi enabled.
Travellers will also be able to make seamless connections between India and the US via London Heathrow.
Juha Jarvinen, executive vice president of commercial at Virgin Atlantic, said: “2019 marks a significant period of growth for Virgin Atlantic and I’m delighted that we’re expanding our route network by returning to Mumbai.
“Along with our long-standing route to Delhi, we are now able to provide travellers with an increased offering to the thriving Indian market and an opportunity to experience our award winning service between the UK and India. Together with our partners at Delta, we offer an excellent choice of connections to the USA via Heathrow Airport.”
Dave Hodges, commercial manager for India at Virgin Atlantic said: “We are really excited to now have a daily flight serving Mumbai-London. Amidst the festive season in India, it is a special time to start the flight and we are confident that Mumbai is going to love the best of Bollywood entertainment and the best Indian food onboard our state of the art 787-9 Dreamliner.”
As well as flying customers, Virgin Atlantic continues to see increased demand for cargo. This fast cargo service will offer new opportunities for companies looking to export and import goods between Mumbai and prime markets in the UK and US.
It’s also an exciting time for Virgin Atlantic as they have taken delivery of their first Airbus A350-1000 aircraft – helping to transform the fleet into one of the quietest and most fuel efficient in the sky.
