India’s direct connectivity with the west coast of US is all set to improve from December. US carrier United has decided to convert its seasonal Delhi-San Francisco (SFO) flight into a year-round service. The airline had originally announced that the flight, which is to start from 5 December, would be a seasonal one with operations in winter.
But given the massive demand for travel on this route – currently operated only by Air India – it has changed that decision. SFO and Newark are United’s west and east coast hubs, respectively.
It is expanding the route to year-round service. The carrier will operate its first nonstop service from the US west coast (SFO) to India with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft beginning 5 December, the airline said. United will resume its daily nonstop on Newark (EWR)-Delhi and EWR-Mumbai routes from 6 September. United had suspended the Delhi flight on 5 April due to closure of Pakistani airspace and on 21 June, the Mumbai one was suspended due to US curbs on flying over Iran.
