This month, passengers at the Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) on a route of Mumbai - Addis Abba will get to fly to over 50 destinations through the intra-African network, with the world's most modern aircraft, the Airbus 350-900 XWB. It recently flew to Mumbai CSI Airport through the African Ethiopian Airlines.

The aircraft offers business, premium and economy classes and has various features and cabin interiors integrated with the latest high-definition touch screen, personal monitors, wider seats, and windows, LED mood lighting among many others, according to a press statement to Travelers Today.

The Airbus 350-900 XWB has its fuselage and wings created out of carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer and has the lowest engine noise with 25 percent emission levels. Aimed to have an environmental impact, the eco-friendly airline weighs 280 tons and boasts of a high-capacity seating of 325 passengers.

The flight is seen to boost trade and commercial ties between India and Africa. Over 44 international airlines are operating in Mumbai and more than 11 million passengers aboard the aircraft in a year.

The GVK Mumbai International Airport Pvt. Ltd Mumbai said in a press release that the airport serves as Africa's major entry to the country, with 70 percent of flights exchanged between India and Africa. Last year, 800,000 passengers traveled between the two nations and were growing at a rate of 8 percent each year.

Geographical speaking, Mumbai is a strategic location and act as a central hub for passengers between South East Asia and Africa. Ethiopian Airlines is the first African brand to bring it's the new Airbus 350-900 to Mumbai. Moreover, about five years ago, Ethiopian Airlines was also the first to bring the Boeing 787 dream liner to CSIA.

With this new offer, GVK Mumbai International Airport targets CSIA to be one of the world's best airports and a pride of Mumbai. They have improved Terminal 2 at CSIA to enrich the airport's capacity in serving 40 million passengers every year.
