Last Thursday Air India launched its first-ever non-stop service between Mumbai and San Francisco with flights operating 3 times a week.
Air India is pleased to announce the launch of a new flight route, as part of their commitment to providing customers with the highest levels of service and convenience. This decision is a reflection of their ambition to expand their global presence, ensuring that they can meet passengers’ needs wherever they travel throughout the world.
Air India is continuing to strengthen Mumbai's position as a major international transportation hub. With the launch of its new direct Mumbai-San Francisco route, the airline will also be adding additional long-haul services to New York City (JFK), Frankfurt, and Paris. In addition, there are plans to add more domestic flights originating from Mumbai in the near future.
Air India has just added the Boeing 777-200LR aircraft to its fleet, which will now enable the airline to operate a total of 40 non-stop flights per week between India and the United States. The flight frequency will be three times a week - on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
Speaking on the new flight launch, Hon’ble Minister of Civil Aviation, Shri Jyotiraditya M. Scindia said, “Today is a historic day for Maharashtra, India, and Air India. The Civil Aviation sector in India is on the cusp of transformation, and India is the third largest civil aviation market in the world with a growth of 10.6% CAGR in the last ten years. Air India has played a significant role in the sector's transformation in the past and will continue to contribute to the growth of the industry. With Air India’s legacy, culture, and vision, the airline will take Indian Civil Aviation to newer heights.”
