Delhi, India: €1,463 Nonstop Air India Business Class from Milan

Mumbai, Indien

Star Alliance carrier Air India has issued a pretty decent fare for its nonstop service between Milan and Delhi. For just €1,463, travellers can take the eight-hour-trip to India’s capital and back in a lie-flat-seat. Along come goodies such as lounge access, extra baggage allowance and priority services. The fare is available for almost any possible departure date and requires no minimum stay.

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Skyscanner with your selected flight dates. From there, you can proceed to Air India’s website or can check what OTAs have to offer, as they sell these tickets up to €50 cheaper than the airline.


Air India operates Boeing 787-8 aircraft on flights between Italy and Delhi. These planes feature 18 lie-flat-seats in business class, configured in a 2-2-2 pattern. You can find a review of the product on a similar route (Frankfurt to Delhi) here.

Search & Book

The fare rules give absolutely no restrictions despite a maximum stay of six months. You can stay as little as two days in India (since the flight is not operated daily) and still score tickets at the lowest fare.

Google Flights previews availabilities reliably. While tickets from online travel agencies are cheaper, we recommend buying premium tickets directly from the airline.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.
