Virgin Atlantic is hoping to increase its services from Mumbai, India. Richard Branson hopes that Virgin Atlantic will be given rights to fly a daily service to Mumbai from this winter. Currently the airline runs 1 daily flight from Delhi and three from Mumbai. Under a new agreement the two countries will increase the total number of flights from 40 to 130 a week.

A new Civil aviation agreement has also been made between US and Indian carriers.
