Air India Starts Non Stop from NYC to Bombay

One more service starts non-stop from my present home to my permanent one.

Air India will start flying non stop from New York to Bombay and return from August 01, 2007.

With Continental also slated to start a non stop sometime in September, there are now three non stop daily services linking the two great cities. Delta has been doing this since November 2006.

Air India will introduce a daily, non-stop flight from New York’s JFK International Airport to Mumbai from August 1.

These new, non-stop flights are in addition to Air India’s daily 747-400 direct service from New York to India via London, and from Newark to India via Paris.

In its bid to meet the increasing demand from passengers wanting to travel to India for business or tourism, India’s flagship carrier plans to introduce brand new, state-of-the-art 777-LR aircraft, equipped with the latest in-flight features and on-demand audio and video entertainment for all seats.

An Air India communique said that the airline’s Flight 140 will depart daily at 9:30 p.m. from JFK International Airport, while Flight 141 will depart Mumbai at 12:45 a.m., arriving at JFK at 7:10 AM the same day. [link]

So, come on start packing your bags.

  1. I believe Kingfisher Airlines too is planning on starting the same.

    I am also not sure what the current status of this is – but I think you were required to have transit visas for even stopovers in Europe some time back. If that is the case, this is a relief!
