Air India on Monday began flying to Bangladesh capital Dhaka from New Delhi.
"Air India linked Dhaka with the Indian capital with a direct daily flight from today (Monday), fulfilling a long-standing aspiration of the people of the two neighbouring countries," the national carrier said in a statement.
Air India will operate Airbus 320 aircraft on this sector.
Air India further said this new route will also expand its transit passenger business, as onwards flights from Delhi will be available.
"To those arriving in Delhi from Dhaka, the convenient flight schedule will offer direct onward connections from Delhi to London, Paris and Frankfurt besides direct flights to the US and Gulf."
