Air India will deploy Boeing 777s on all west bound international destinations as well as Tokyo.

Of the 111 aircraft it has on order, the carrier says that it has inducted 64 so far. These include eight Boeing 777-200LRs and nine Boeing 777-300ERs.

From 25 October, the 777s will be used exclusively on flights to Newark, Paris, Toronto, as well as Tokyo. They will replace Airbus A330s and 747-400s.

In addition, the carrier is increasing the frequency on the Mumbai-Riyadh and Delhi-Riyadh routes to a total of 11 flights combined, up from nine. It will operate 777-200LRs on all services instead of 747-400s.

The carrier already uses 777s on its flights to New York-JFK, Chicago, Frankfurt, and London.
