Jaguar Land Rover parent company Tata is launching an air link between Mumbai and the UK – with return fares under £ 450.
Tata subsidiary Indian airline Vistara service between Heathrow and the coastal city will start on 16 January to complement an existing route from London to Delhi.
Vistara is a joint venture between the Tata group and Singapore Airlines and the new service, which is expected to operate three times a week, will provide a bilateral transport link between India and the UK.
Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner jets will operate on the route with economy return fares from £ 439.
Passengers can enjoy full flatbeds, three cabins with jet lag lighting, dimmable windows and free onboard Wi-Fi.
Thousands of children in Birmingham are headed for a Christmas without a proper home this year – but there is something you can do.
Our campaign, Grant a Christmas #BrumWish, aims to buy gifts for more than 1,000 young people who are cramped together, sharing beds, in soulless rooms in B & Bs, and others who will be staying at a women’s relief center.
It’s all through an Amazon Wishlist – meaning you can personally purchase a gift that will be delivered before December 25th.
Make sure you set delivery for the # BrumWish campaign, and we make sure that the presents get to the children.
Leslie Thng, CEO of Vistara, said: “We are delighted with the very positive response to our service between Delhi and London Heathrow, which has encouraged us to further strengthen the network by adding connectivity from Mumbai as we have significant demand between the two countries, and optimistic about the future.
“Vistara is well positioned with its brand-new fleet, world-class cabin products, award-winning service and, most importantly, our customers’ trust.”
The State Department travel advisory for India states that a limited number of flights are operated under a bilateral agreement “but these are subject to strict criteria and details may change at short notice”.
Vistara said it will accept all eligible customers who meet visa / entry requirements in both countries, as specified by the respective government agencies.
