Direct Flight from Manchester to Mumbai,India

This petition had 42 supporters


Dear Air India,

We request Airindia to consider commencing a new service or route from Manchester to Mumbai. There are a lot of Indians, especially south Indians are living in and around Manchester. We are seeing an increasing number of Indian businesses choosing Manchester as a base of their operations. Manchester continues to grow as a tech hub globally.

We are seeing continuous increase in services operated by other airlines ( Emirates, Qatar, Etihad, Oman etc..) from Manchester and most of these airlines have 2 services per day. Majority of passengers in these flights are Indians or the business executives travelling to and from India. Mumbai is central to India and it would be an ideal port for ALL indians as it will save time for everyone from south, North and East. Mumbai has excellent existing onward travel connections with all major Indian cities. So it would be wise to consider this new route, it will be a help to the thousands of Indians residing in and around Manchester ( Nearby Cities: Leeds, Liverpool, Bradford, Sheffield, Hull, Newcastle, Stoke on Trent, etc…) . 

The existing volume of indirect passenger journeys to India from within north of England confirms the viability of direct flights. The introduction of such services would provide vital connectivity for the business community and the large Indian population in the North of England. I am sure tis route will be a profitable one for AirIndia if established.

We humbly request Airindia to consider this new route.
