With Mumbai, Brussels Airlines adds the Indian subcontinent to its network. The multicultural metropolis is the economic and commercial heart of India. The big financial corporations as well as the car and pharma producers, the fashion industry and the fast growing diamond industry all have their headquarters in the gigantic agglomeration or in the state of Maharashtra, of which Mumbai is the capital. Also the cultural sector, marked by the Bollywood film industry, has its home here.

Mumbai is the main port of India and is an important hub for the import and export sector. For tourists, the rich history of Mumbai makes it worth a visit, but it is also a good starting point to visit the rest of the country.
