This move is part of the network alignment process between Air India and Air India Express. It aims to achieve synergy by increasing its presence on more commercially viable routes and reducing frequencies on overlapping routes.




Air India has assigned its Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner planes, equipped with 18 Business Class fully-flat beds and 238 Economy Class seats, on most of its daily flights between Delhi and Mumbai to Dubai. The remaining flights are serviced by Airbus A320/321 aircraft.
