Air India marks 70 years since 1st India-UK flight

air

 

Air India is marking 70 years since its first flight took off from Mumbai to London in June 1948, which laid the foundations of the India-UK relationship. The national carrier has invited members of the Indian diaspora in Britain to share their memories of the airline in its early days.

The iconic first flight, on a Super Constellation aircraft, took off from Mumbai on June 8 and landed in London via Cairo and Geneva on June 10, 1948, with just 42 passengers on board, including some Indian ‘Nawabs’ and ‘Maharajas’. Air India is preparing to mark the historic journey later this month.
