Fares to Mumbai will start from £473, with flights leaving Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning in December. The price to Dehli will be £480 per person with flights leaving Tuesdays and Saturdays starting in January.
In the summer Virgin Atlantic announced it would be launching three new, nonstop routes to Pakistan from December.
Juha Jarvinen, Chief Commercial Officer at Virgin Atlantic said: “We’re delighted to launch new flying from our home in the north in Manchester. India boasts the largest foreign-born population in the UK and we’re anticipating that post Covid-19, the demand to travel home to visit loved ones will increase.
