MUMBAI: Government-owned Air India today resumed its flight services to Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh besides launching air services to Surat from here.

Air India, in a statement said that both flights, Mumbai-Surat-Mumbai and Mumbai Gwalior-Mumbai will operate three times a week on (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays) with an ATR 72-600 aircraft.
