Air India’s first Boeing 787 Dreamliner for Kochi will begin operations next month.

Daily flights on the Kochi-Delhi-Dubai sector will be operated with the Dreamliner from February 1, Malayala Manorama has reported.

Air India has completed all formalities to launch the flight and is awaiting a formal nod from the Parliamentary Consultative Committee attached to the Civil Aviation Ministry, the report quoted a senior AI official as saying.

Flight schedules will be published soon.

It had been a long-pending demand from Kerala to the national carrier to introduce Dreamliner flights to the state’s commercial capital, but the proposal remained on paper due to various reasons.
