Air India has been operating Boeing 787-800 Dreamliner services to the Gulf since 2012 when it launched a flight to Dubai from New Delhi.

“We are going to operate New Delhi-Kochi-Dubai route with a Dreamliner from February 1,” Air India Chairman and managing Director Ashwani Lohani said on Wednesday.

Lohani said that the airline currently has 22 Boeing 787-800 aircraft in its fleet, and one more such aircraft will be added in the fleet tomorrow.

“We will deploy this aircraft on the New Delhi-Kochi-Dubai route,” he said. Air India flies majority of these aircraft on its European routes.
