  • Passengers will be able to take advantage of the same baggage allowance on both legs of their journey.
  • The agreement is currently available for booking through travel agents globally. Air India plans to extend the facility to its own sales channels progressively.

Extensive European Coverage

The collaboration between Air India and AccesRail presents travellers with a unique opportunity to experience the charm of Europe’s diverse destinations. Passengers can leverage Air India’s European gateways in Amsterdam, Birmingham, London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Milan, and Vienna to embark on their intermodal journeys.

This comprehensive coverage ensures that even smaller European cities without direct airports are within easy reach.


A Leap Towards Sustainability

Nipun Aggarwal, the Chief Commercial and Transformation Officer of Air India, emphasized the strategic importance of this partnership in the airline’s ongoing transformation. Aggarwal stated, “The expansion of our global network is one of our key priorities… This partnership with AccesRail not only helps us to provide our guests easy access to an extended network of destinations across Europe but also to bridge the gaps in connectivity between India and Europe. Augmenting our network with an intermodal approach also underlines our commitment to environmental sustainability.”

Currently, intermodal tickets for Air India’s extended network are available through global travel agents. The airline plans to progressively extend this facility to its own sales channels, further enhancing the accessibility and convenience of these travel options.

In an era where travellers seek convenience, choice, and sustainability, Air India’s collaboration with AccesRail signifies a major stride forward.

This partnership not only propels the airline’s global footprint but also ensures that passengers can now explore Europe’s hidden gems with greater ease, comfort, and environmental consciousness.
