Air India plans to spread its wings in Africa

Air India aims to provide point-to-point connectivity to African regions, where it currently does not operate, besides enhancing services on existing routes, as part of its aggressive network expansion plan.

Air India is looking at reviving its flying operations to Kenya and Tanzania, which it had discontinued some years back.

“We are looking at connecting some of the points in African continents. We used to operate to Nairobi and Dar es Salaam from Mumbai, which we discontinued a few years ago. With the capacity (aircraft) coming in, we should be able to connect these two cities in the region. Besides, the airline is also in talks with the South African authorities for possible operations to Durban”, the airline official said.
