Air India on Thursday launched a daily flight on the Delhi-Paris-Delhi sector with a new Boeing 787 Dreamliner from the IGI airport.

The airline received the sixth Dreamliner only six days ago.

Dreamliners fly from Delhi to Dubai and Frankfurt, in addition to some domestic sectors.

Next destination

The next destination to be served by the aircraft is likely to be London by next month.

Two more Dreamliners are expected to be delivered within this financial year.

Air India has 27 of these planes on order, each with 18 full-flat business seats and 238 in the economy wing.

It has begun replacing its 777s with these more fuel-efficient new planes, which are built of composite material, on its international routes out of Delhi and Mumbai over the past two months.
