British Airways has two daily business class flights to Mumbai from London.
Business class flights to Mumbai land at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport and depart from London Heathrow, Manchester, and Edinburgh. British Airways has two flights to choose from, one leaving in the morning and arriving late at night (10:00 -> 23:45), and the other leaving at night and arriving late morning (21:25 -> 11:10).
All airlines offer the usual business class amenities, but it is worth mentioning that some customers found Air India’s seats to be a little dirty and small.
Getting to and from Mumbai airport
To get from the airport to your accommodation can take anywhere between 25 minutes to 2 hours depending on the traffic. If you arrive late at night, taking a cab will be the easiest way to travel. Grab a prepaid taxi (the cheaper, more comfortable option) as you exit the airport. The trip will cost 600 rupees at most (under 7 pounds).
If you arrive during the daytime and are in a rush, catching the train might get you to the city centre a little faster. Catch a taxi to Vile Parle station and hop on the next train to Churchgate. The trip should take 45 minutes – much quicker than sitting in 2 hours of city traffic.
Where to stay in Mumbai
Compliment your business class flights to Mumbai with a stay at one of the city’s top hotels. The Oberoi, located in Nariman Point – the city’s shopping and business district – serenely overlooks the ocean. Enjoy light-filled rooms and a restaurant run by a Michelin-star chef.
For a beach getaway, stay at the JW Marriott Hotel, beautifully positioned next to the sparkling waters of Juhu Beach. With staff trained by ballet dancers to look poised at all times, you can be sure service at the Marriot is nothing short of excellent.
