Air-India to fly non-stop to New York from April

New York: Air-India would start flying daily non-stop from New York to Mumbai from April, the airline has announced.
The non-stop between the two countries by India’s national carries is expected to give tough competition to the two US airlines — Continental Airways and American Airlines — which fly non-stop to New Delhi.
A. K. Mathur, Air-India head of North America operations said the non-stop service would begin following the delivery of the state-of-the-art B777-200 LR (Long Range) from February by Boeing.
Mathur said A-I was also looking at three other American cities — Washington D.C., Houston / Dallas and San Francisco — as part of its next phase of expansion plans in US. “These operations would be eventually daily,” he said, adding the exact date of launching these operations was yet to be decided based on the delivery of the planes.
