@Airlineroute India’s IndiGo has revealed two new daily nonstop routes it plans to launch this year. The first to launch will be a flight between Bengaluru and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, starting March 29.
@AlexInAir Qatar Airways will fly a convoy of 8 cargo aircraft, with a 4 minute spacing between each flight, to Beijing, Guangzhou & Shanghai on Friday – carrying medical supply donations from around the world. #China.

@e_russell Delta expects just one – one – of its 16 scheduled A321neo deliveries this year.
