Branson also cited Virgin Atlantic’s growing international network – owing to its partnership with Delta Air – as another reason for returning to Mumbai now.
Jarvinen added that roughly 80 percent of the passenger traffic is directed to the UK, giving Virgin Atlantic a strong position in the local market.
Going forward, Virgin Atlantic said it is interested in opening up the Manchester-India route in the future, although there is no confirmation on the timelines yet.
