Air India will introduce three-times-a-week non-stop service between New York’s JFK International Airport and Mumbai on Dec. 7.

The flights will depart at 11:05 am from JFK on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday on 777-300ER planes. They will arrive in Mumbai at 12:10 pm the following day.

“Our flights are also among the most convenient for passengers traveling beyond Mumbai and Delhi, with customs and immigration formalities completed at the final destination on select connecting flights to major cities across India," said Bhuvana Rao, Air India’s Regional Head in the Americas.

With the current JFK – Delhi daily service, the new flights bring non-stop JFK – India service to 10 flights a week, while increasing total non-stop service from the U.S. to India to 36 nationwide. These include daily non-stop service from Newark (EWR) to Mumbai and Chicago (ORD) to Delhi, 3x weekly Washington (IAD) to Delhi, and 9x weekly San Francisco (SFO) to Delhi. All flights offer convenient connections from the U.S. to major cities across India, including Bangalore, Amritsar, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune and more.

Tip of the Day

I do think there are possibilities for traveler advisors to make money doing domestic trips. I charge a planning fee for my time and expertise, and then book commissionable hotels and activities that meet the client’s needs.
