For travelers looking to book a flight between the United States and India, Air India is offering discounted fares of $787 round trip to celebrate the new direct 787 Dreamliner service.
Tickets for the Air India flights from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport in Ahmedabad must be purchased by July 31, and the discounted price includes all taxes and fees.
Air India’s 787 Dreamliner service will begin operating three flights a week—Monday, Thursday and Friday—on August 15. The journeys will feature a mid-flight stop in London, though stopovers are not permitted.
The deal applies to flights from Newark to Ahmedabad between Aug. 15 and Sept. 30, but there are some caveats. In addition to a $25.00 weekend surcharge for return travel on Fridays, travelers must stay through the first Sunday, with a maximum stay of three months.
The 787 Dreamliner planes used for the new service will feature best-in-class Economy class service and Business Class service with 180-degree reclining flat beds. All Air India flights will also feature Indian and Continental cuisine available for both cabins.
