British Airways has been awarded seven new flights between the UK and India by the Civil Aviation Authority.
This includes four extra services to Chennai and a new three-times-a-week service to Bangalore starting next summer.
However, the airline said it was disappointed that it had not been awarded more flights to India.
The airline`s chief executive, Rod Eddington, said: While we look forward to increasing flights to Chennai and starting new services to Bangalore we would like to operate more flights to India. The CAA?s remit was to award the frequencies to the airline that could bring maximum benefits to consumers and the UK economy. We believe that we were best placed to do that.
The airline said that it will study the decision in more detail and may well continue to argue the case for more capacity to India.
