MANCHESTER - Virgin Atlantic will launch services to Delhi and Mumbai from Manchester as the airline ramps up flying from its home in the north.

Flying three times a week from Manchester to Mumbai beginning in December and twice weekly to Delhi starting in January, these new services went on sale on 20th October.

With more than 16 million Indians living outside of their country and 500,000 living across the north of England, India has the world’s largest diaspora. These new services will open up more than 130,000 seats between Manchester and India and aim to respond to the large, fast-growing demand to visit friends and relatives as well as capturing demand for business and leisure travel to the region as global economies gradually recover from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

As well as flying customers, Virgin Atlantic will offer a cargo service presenting new opportunities for companies looking to export and import goods such as fresh produce, pharmaceuticals and textiles between prime markets in the UK, US and India.
