In the last few months, Air India has been introducing the Airbus A350-900, and will be utilizing it further in New Delhi & Mumbai.

Using data from AeroRoutes.com, you will be able to figure out how to see the aircraft type in the two cities.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Air India will begin Airbus A350-900 flights between New Delhi & Mumbai from April 1.

To begin with, the route will be serviced by the aircraft once daily, before increasing to 13 weekly on April 10.

You only have a limited window to spot the aircraft on this flight, as it will run until June 10.

Below are the time ranges in when you can see the Air India Airbus A350 in New Delhi & Mumbai:

  • New Delhi:
    • Between 1045 and 2200 local time.
  • Mumbai:
    • Between 0700 and 1600 local time.

After June 10, we will no doubt see more operations unveiled which would be typically suited to the longer flights.

Air India has 40 Airbus A350 aircraft on order, which was recently changed to 20 -900s and 20 -1000s.

On the Airbus side of the blockbuster order made back in February, this was dissected into the following:

  • 140 A320neos.
  • 70 A321neos.
  • 34 A350-1000s.
  • 6 A350-900s.

The A350-900 and -1000 order alteration isn’t the only one that they made with the European planemaker.

As Richard Schuurman at AirInsight rightly notes, Air India has swapped 70 A320neo aircraft on order to the A321neo, which means that the order now looks like this instead:

  • 70 A320neos.
  • 140 A321neos.
  • 20 A350-1000s.
  • 20 A350-900s.

So as well as seeing the -900 in New Delhi & Mumbai, you will eventually see the -1000 variant as well.

In conclusion, there will be ample opportunity to see the Air India Airbus A350 in New Delhi & Mumbai.

For those that live local to those airports, time is limited in terms of being able to see it perform these flights.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on what other routes the aircraft will eventually be utilized on.

But for now, let’s see how the continued operations with the aircraft type perform.
