Air India will be operating direct air services between Melbourne and Delhi from the winter schedule 2010.
The services will meet a long-felt demand for direct connectivity between India and Australia, a press release issued in Mumbain on Wednesday stated.
Air India will be resuming services to Australia after a lapse of over a decade.
Apart from serving the Indian diaspora in the region, the new link will cater to the growing demand of business travelers not only between the two countries but also beyond India to the Gulf and Europe, the release said.
The services will be operated with B-777 aircraft on a daily basis. The air services are expected to begin by late October/early November this year.
