Direct flights from Stockholm to Mumbai

As you all are aware, not a single airline is operating direct services from India to Stockholm and therefore, we are left with no choice, but travel with a one stop flight, which almost takes a whole day. 

Over the years, many Swedish companies have started hiring Indians, mostly software professionals, for their high tech jobs. If you look at the statistics, India stands top in number of work permits granted last year. Therefore, there is substantial business traffic between India and Stockholm. Also Swedish companies are more and more outsourcing their business to India, which has increased the traffic potential between India and Stockholm. Consequently, Indians visiting their families and friends in Sweden also has increased. 

To corroborate our views, Hindi movies are being specially aired for the Indians in Stockholm and Indian street food trucks and restaurants have increase business. To make it easy for the Indians settled in Sweden, one Indian guy has even started a search engine, viz, http://www.searchindie.com/ , which shows that Indian expats have indeed multiplied during the past few years.

Therefore, we wish to appeal to the Indian Embassy in Stockholm to request the Ministry of Civil Aviation in India to start a direct flight from Stockholm to India. We understand from press reports that Air India is planning to commence operations to Copenhagen. We would, therefore, request Air India to commence operations to Stockholm, since as per our understanding the traffic between India and Stockholm is more than that to Copenhagen and in the coming years it is expected to increase further with Swedish companies hiring more Indians.
