Air India to start A350 aircraft on Delhi-Dubai Route from May 1

Air India has revealed its plans to introduce its state-of-the-art A350 aircraft on the bustling Delhi-Dubai route this summer, marking a significant milestone as the aircraft makes its inaugural appearance on short-haul international flights.

Commencing May 1, 2024, passengers travelling between Delhi and Dubai with Air India will have the opportunity to enjoy the A350 experience, adorned in its striking new design. Operating under the flight numbers AI995/996, the aircraft will depart from Delhi daily at 20:45hrs, touching down in Dubai at 22:45hrs. The return journey from Dubai is scheduled for the following day at 00:15hrs, arriving back in Delhi at 04:55hrs. All times are local.

This move solidifies Air India’s position as the exclusive carrier offering the A350 service between India and Dubai.

Seats aboard the A350 on the Delhi-Dubai route can be reserved through Air India’s official website and mobile app, or by contacting travel agents.

Air India’s A350 aircraft feature 28 private suites with full-flat beds in Business, 24 seats in a dedicated Premium Economy cabin offering extra legroom and other enhancements, and 264 spacious seats in Economy. All seats on the A350 come with the latest-generation Panasonic eX3 in-flight entertainment system and HD screens that offer more than 2,200 hours of entertainment content from around the world.

The airline 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.
