Mumbai: State-run airline Air India is going to resume flight services between New Delhi and Madrid from April 18, the national carrier said in a statement. An official statement released by Air India said, “Air India is set to resume its thrice-a-week service on the Delhi-Madrid-Delhi sector from April 18, after a brief interlude to cater to the consistent heavy demand from passengers both in Spain and India.”
Why was the flight service suspended?
The flights to Madrid and Birmingham had been suspended temporarily after Pakistan closed its airspace for all West-bound flights to and from India. Air India offers three-times-a-week flight services to the Spanish capital from New Delhi.

As news emerged, the national carrier has also announced return fares, starting from Euro 487 (Rs 38,211.63), for the Madrid-Delhi-Madrid sector. The route is serviced by India’s flagship aircraft Boeing 787-800.
