Air India to launch second DIRECT route from BHX

A new service is set to be launched from Birmingham Airport to northern India.

Air India, which already operates a daily service to Delhi from the airport, plans to introduce two non-stop flights per week to Amritsar in the Punjab state next year.


Amritsar is home to the Golden Temple Gurdwara, considered to be the most important pilgrimage site in the Sikh religion.

Air India services started in Birmingham in August 2013 since when the Delhi route has carried almost 500,000 passengers.
Birmingham Airport's aviation director William Pearson said: "It is great news that we will have non-stop connections to two Indian cities.

"With over 200,000 British-Indian people who travel to India to visit friends and relatives, and for tourism and business interests, this additional destination shows the large demand within the region for non-stop Amritsar services from the Midlands.

"Air India has been a successful partner for over four years and offers great connections to India with services operated by the new Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft."
Pankaj Srivastava, director of commercial Air India, added: "We are delighted to announce we are planning to commence non-stop services between Birmingham and Amritsar twice a week, recognising the consumer demand from the Midlands' region to Amritsar.

"Air India is always very sensitive to the needs of the consumer and is pleased to be connecting the two cities, thereby adding a new city pairing for Air India's expanding global network with the only non-stop UK Amritsar service."

West Midlands Mayor Andy Street said: "One of the most common issues raised when I talk to the Sikh community in our region is that they and their families are unable to fly directly to Amritsar.

BHX named 3rd for the fastest and cheapest transfers to the city centre

Euro travellers rejoice! GoEuro, the platform for comparing and booking trains, buses and flights across Europe, has analysed more than 70 European airports to rank the fastest and cheapest transfers to city centres.

The data reveals transfer fares range from 64p to £25 and journey times vary from five to 85 minutes. Nice Côte d'Azur secured the position of the most convenient airport in Europe, with a five minute transfer time costing just £1.59. Closer to home, Birmingham was the only UK city to make it into the top 20 European airports, with London Gatwick ranking as the most inconvenient airport in the list. London Heathrow, Luton and Stansted airports all scored in the bottom 10 for duration and costs – adding valuable minutes and expense to passengers before they can truly start their visit to England’s capital.

The Ten most convenient European airport transfers:

Nice Côte d'Azur, five minute transfer from £1.59
Lanzarote, 10 minute transfer from £1.24
Birmingham, 9 minute transfer from £2.90
Málaga-Costa del Sol, 12 minute transfer from £1.59
Frankfurt, 10 minute transfer from £4.24
Nürnberg, 12 minute transfer from £2.65
Cologne Bonn, 13 minute transfer from £2.12
Prague, 15 minute transfer from £0.79
Leipzig-Halle, 13 minute transfer from £3.97
Amsterdam Schiphol, 14 minute transfer from £3.71


The Ten least convenient European airport transfers:

London-Gatwick, 30 minute transfer from £19.90
London-Luton, 60 minute transfer from £18.00
Frankfurt-Hahn, 85 minute transfer from £12.36
London-Stansted, 60 minute transfer from £16.60
Beauvais, 75 minute transfer from £14.04
Paris-Charles de Gaulle, 28 minute transfer from £8.61
London-Heathrow, 15 minute transfer from £25.00
Stockholm Arlanda, 20 minute transfer from £25.60
Paris Orly, 30 minute transfer from £7.06
Edinburgh, 30 minute transfer from £4.50
