Air India becomes 1st Indian airline to fly over North pole

Date: 16 August 2019 Tags: Infrastructure
  • Air India has launched its Boeing 777 aircraft over the North Pole to become the first Indian airline to operate commercial flights overflying the polar region.
  • Its Delhi-San Francisco flight, which usually overflies the Atlantic or the Pacific ocean, cut across latitudes instead on Thursday to fly over zero degree north.
  • The launch of this new route is expected to reduce the flying duration by one-and-a-half hours approximately. In addition to this, fuel savings on the polar route will be in the region of 2 tonnes to 7 tonnes per flight. Also, the reduced carbon emissions will contribute towards eco-conservation.
  • Risk assessment, special crew training, weather monitoring and aircraft serviceability have all been assessed to ensure enhanced safety on this sector.
