Preet Kaur Gill, MP for Birmingham Edgbaston said:
"I'm delighted to say that after organising joint letters from 12 MPs across the West Midlands to Air India and meeting with Birmingham Airport's CEO, flights from Birmingham to India have increased from one a week to six. This is confirmed between October and December. "Flights from Birmingham to Amritsar will increase from one flight a week to three. And a brand-new flight route to Delhi will see three flights travel from Birmingham.
"This is fantastic news for the region. Not only will this be a major boost for the aviation industry which was severely hit by the pandemic, but to the large Punjabi and Sikh diaspora communities across the West Midlands."
