Virgin Atlantic has become the latest airline to seek to capitalise on the grounding of the Indian carrier, Jet Airways, by relaunching its link from Heathrow to Mumbai.

The Heathrow-Mumbai link was restored in 2012 but dropped again three years later, when Virgin Atlantic entered into a codeshare agreement to put passengers on Jet Airways’ twice-daily service on the route.

The Mumbai service will have an early morning arrival into, and departure from, Heathrow in order to connect with as many UK-North America flights as possible.

The outbound will leave Heathrow at 10.15, arrving at 00.40

The return will leave Mumbai at 02.55, arriving at 07.35

It will use a Boeing 787-9 aircraft with:

  • 31 Upper Class seats,
  • 35 Premium and
  • 192 Economy.
