Delta Airlines announced earlier in 2019 that they would be flying to Mumbai, India later this year. The airline has now released details on the flights, which will begin Dec. 22, flying from New York to Mumbai.
“Delta’s nonstop service between New York and Mumbai is the latest example of our international growth as we strive to connect the world better than any other airline,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian. “This route would not be possible without the administration’s ongoing efforts to enforce fair competition in international travel, ensuring that consumers enjoy a wide range of choices as they travel the globe.”
The flight will go from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Mumbai. Delta Airlines had offered service between the United States and Mumbai starting in 2006, but had to suspend the flights in 2009 due to lower cost airlines in the Middle East.
Delta offers 500 daily departures from New York airports (LaGuardia Airport and JFK Airport), including 43 international destinations in 32 countries from JFK.
Delta Airlines also recently announced a second daily flight from JFK to Tel Aviv and a second daily flight to Paris, as well as adding new services to London’s Gatwick Airport.
The flights to Mumbai from JFK will leave New York City at 9:15 p.m. each day and arrive in Mumbai at 10:50 p.m. the following day. The return flight will leave Mumbai at 12:50 a.m. and arrive at JFK at 6:50 a.m.
