In recent years, airlines have been forced to make significant changes to their operations due to the ever-increasing cost of fuel. One of the most visible changes has been the dramatic increase in the price of international flights from the USA to India.
The cost of a round-trip ticket from New York to Mumbai has gone up by over 50% in the last two years, and shows no signs of slowing down. This rise in price is due to a number of factors, including the fact that demand for flights to India has been steadily increasing, while the number of seats available has remained relatively static.
With no end in sight to the rising cost of fuel, it is likely that we will see even more increases in the price of international flights from the USA to India in the near future.
Latest news on international flights from USA to India
There have been some changes in the international flight schedules from USA to India. Some airlines have cancelled their flights and others have changed their routes. Here are the latest updates on the situation.
Delta Air Lines to resume flights from Atlanta to India
Delta Air Lines said on Wednesday it will resume flights from Atlanta to India starting Oct. 30, making it the first U.S. carrier to operate scheduled service to the South Asian country in nearly five months.
The flights, which will operate four times a week, come as the U.S. State Department has lifted its travel advisory for India, and as other airlines have already begun resuming flights to the country.
“We are pleased to resume our service to India and provide our customers with a convenient way to travel between the two countries,” said Delta’s Senior Vice President of Network Planning Joe Esposito in a statement.
The airline had suspended all flights to India in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
United Airlines to resume flights from Newark to India
United Airlines is set to resume flights from Newark to India, starting October 29, after a nearly two-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The airline will operate three times weekly service on the route with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
“We are pleased to resume our service between Newark and India,” said United’s senior vice president of International Network, Patrick Quayle. “Our team has been working hard to restart service to our customers and we are committed to providing them with safe and reliable options.”
The news comes as a relief to many Indian Americans who have been stranded in the United States since the pandemic began. It also comes as a boost to the Indian economy, which has been hit hard by the pandemic.
United’s flight from Newark will depart on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 9:00 p.m. local time and arrive in Delhi at 5:30 p.m. local time the next day. The flight from Delhi will depart on Fridays, Sundays and Mondays at 1:30 a.m. local time and arrive in Newark at 5:30 a.m. local time the same day.
American Airlines to resume flights from Dallas to India
American Airlines said Wednesday it will resume daily flights between Dallas and India after a five-year hiatus, becoming the only U.S. carrier with direct service to the South Asian nation.
The Fort Worth-based airline said the flight, which will operate on a Boeing 777-300ER, will depart Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport at 1:30 a.m. and arrive at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport at 5:55 p.m. the following day. The return flight will leave Delhi at 9 p.m. and arrive in Dallas at 1:05 p.m. the same day.
The flights will operate from Oct. 15 through March 27, 2020, American said in a statement, noting that connectivity to other parts of India and the world will be available through its partners British Airways and Jet Airways.
“We are excited to announce these new flights to Delhi, which provides our customers with convenient one-stop service from DFW,” Vasu Raja, American’s vice president of network and schedule planning, said in the statement.”This important market connects two economically vibrant regions and meets customer demand for more options to travel between the United States and India.”
Currently, there are no nonstop flights between the U.S
As of now, there is no official update from the U.S. Department of State or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the status of flights from the United States to India. However, given the current situation with the coronavirus pandemic, it is advisable to avoid non-essential travel at this time. If you must travel, please check with your airline or travel provider for the most up-to-date information on flight schedules and safety precautions.
