Hi everyone. It has been some time since I went on a holiday with my family so this time we decided to go on a weeklong vacation to Sweden. The choice was a European nation and we all decided to visit some North European Nation. Sweden had always been on my wish list, and finally the time came when we went there. The ticket part was planned and finalised by me. The travel app on my phone was quite helpful for this purpose. I had booked tickets for four of us from Udaipur to Stockholm, the capital city of Sweden.

Our flight was from Maharana Pratap Airport Udaipur to Arlanda Airport, Stockholm. The flight was a multiple carrier, with one being an Indian Airlines flight from Udaipur to Frankfurt and the other one was the Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt to Stockholm. We were all quite excited for the trip and the day of our visit we reached the Udaipur airport some 2 hours before to complete the check in and other formalities.
The flight departed from Udaipur at 8:30 PM and within 2:30 hours we were at the New Delhi airport. The flight from New Delhi to Frankfurt departed after waiting at the airport for around 3 hours. The Indian Airlines flight was quite comfortable and with a load of in flight entertainment and delicious meals. It was an 8 hours flight when we reached Frankfurt around 8 AM. The weather at Frankfurt was quite cool and the excitement for our trip starting building.

After some 5 hours layover at the Frankfurt Airport we were ready for our next flight, this time on the Lufthansa airlines from Frankfurt to Arlanda Airport, Sweden. Te aircraft of Lufthansa was amazing from inside. It was quite evident why the airline is considered one of the best in the world. The in flight entertainment stuff was so amazing that it kept us all busy. There was no tiredness in us and we still felt fresh. The food served in the flight was delicious. After a 2 hour flight travel, we reached the Arlanda airport at Stockholm.

When we checked out and were reaching the exit gates we saw a man in his early thirties with a placard with my name written on it. The hotel that I had booked had sent a cab to receive us from the airport. He greeted us with a warm smile and we got inside his taxi to reach our hotel.
The city of Moscow has been recently connected to India via a Domodedovo package launched by Air India. When I was planning my vacation with my family my wife suggested that we visit Russia. The city of Moscow has always enthralled people with its serenity and traditional beauty even after being one of the world’s most important, busy and modern city. Being the capital of Russia it is well connected to most parts of the world.
Recently Air India Airlines started a flight to and from the Domodedovo International Airport, Moscow and the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. We were staying at Udaipur and took an Air India flight from the Maharana Pratap Airport to New Delhi. The flights to Moscow depart 4 days on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

After booking tickets with the Air India Mobile App for flight booking, we took off at 0155 hrs from New Delhi embarking on a journey of over 4200 kilometres. The Air India flight which operates between Domodedovo and New Delhi uses a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The aircraft has only recently joined the Air India airlines fleet. It is a modern engineering marvel and travelling in this aircraft was quite an experience for us, especially for my two little boys Adarsh and Akarsh who were both thrilled and overjoyed.
During the flight my wife and I could not stop talking about our itinerary. We were just too excited to visit the Megacity Moscow. The cultural and European architectural heritage had always captured our imagination as my wife and I both are art lovers. The thought of seeing the world famous Moscow Kremlin, the beautiful Cathedrals and the unsurpassed collection of artefacts in the renowned museums encapsulated in Domodedovo packages just left us enthralled.

The cost of a ticket in a Boeing Dreamliner is a bit more than the average premium flight but the facilities provided on board are way beyond satisfactory. One cannot put a price over the joyful moments one spends with one’s family. The royal cuisine was just exquisite and the entertainment options like video games and movies kept my hyperactive kids busy. The four hours passed by in a rush and we reached the Domodedovo international airport at 0615 hours sharp.
