It was with much aplomb that it was announced back in 2017 that Air India would open a new direct route between New Delhi and Copenhagen.

Then the Corona Crisis hit and the route stalled in 2020 before it had barely had the chance to take off. 

But three years later and the link is back with Air India’s Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner touching down in Copenhagen today.

“It’s a day of celebration at Copenhagen Airport, where we are very happy to welcome Air India back into the fold,” said the airport’s commercial head, Peter Krogsgaard.

“The direct route between Copenhagen and Delhi provides many new opportunities to strengthen trade between Denmark and India, which will benefit Danish business and tourism.”

Coming back, the flight departs the Indian capital at 13:30 and arrives at Kastrup at 17:45.

The capacity on the flight is 256, including 18 seats in business class.
