IndiGo has yet not pulled out of a station completely, having launched Chennai – Singapore flights, when it cancelled flights to Singapore from Mumbai and Delhi.
The cancellation of Delhi – Bangkok double daily flights will free up one aircraft which could well be deployed on the domestic route to take on Air Asia India.

Air India re-times Singapore – Delhi flight to offer more connections

Effective 21st August, Air India will re-time its Singapore – Delhi departure to help connect passengers boarding in Singapore to Frankfurt, Paris, Rome & Milan via its Delhi Hub. The advancement is being done by swapping aircrafts in Singapore, with the Mumbai – Chennai – Singapore flight being shifted from A330 to B787. Delhi – Singapore operated with B787. This will result in delayed departure to Chennai and onwards to Mumbai

Air India re-times flights to Moscow to offer more connections

Air India which recently launched 4x weekly flights to Moscow, will re-time their flights effective Winter schedule to have better connections. I have been arguing that the late night departure is not helping get connections at Russia end. However, this re-time is more to get connections to Australia.

The revised timings would be as below, effective 26th October
AI155 DEL1940 – 2320DME
AI156 DME0100 – 0855DEL
