Air India banks on nonstop flights to bolster global presence

BENGALURU — Air India will roll out nonstop international flights to strengthen its presence in key global markets including the U.S. and Europe as it transforms into a “world class” airline to fend off competition from Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern carriers.

“India has not been well-served by nonstop operations,” Air India CEO Campbell Wilson said at a virtual press conference on Tuesday. “So given the many advantages of flying nonstop in terms of time and convenience … the fact that nonstop service stimulates further demand, we think there is sufficient [demand] to support our ambitions.”
