In a statement, Air India General Manager Ramn Babu said, “Punjabi flavoured food will be served in the aircraft.”
In addition to this, Air India will also start a daily flight connecting Amritsar and Patna from October 27. Patna’s Gurudwara Patna Sahib is sacred for the Sikh community, being the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru.
