Mumbai to loose Virgin Atlantic and Finnair flights by May – Bangalore Aviation

Mumbai to loose Virgin Atlantic and Finnair flights by May

In a space of just two days, Mumbai airport authorities received a dual shock.

Virgin Atlantic is suspending its London Mumbai service from May 3rd, while Finnair will suspend its Helsinki Mumbai service by mid May.

Clearly the economic woes are playing havoc. The Mumbai London route has excess capacity with British Airways, Jet Airways, and Kingfisher Airlines operating non-stops, and Emirates operating five daily flights via Dubai. Finnair though, is still targeting flights to Chennai and/or Bangalore, to capture the tech industry traffic.
