United Receives Permission To Conduct India Charter Flights

United Airlines has been granted permission to perform charter flights from India this month. Additionally, the Chicago-based carrier’s request to conduct a regular service from the county is also under consideration.
Livemint reports that Indian authorities have approved the operator’s request to conduct charter flights from Delhi to Newark. However, with India still having strict international travel restrictions in place, there will be no passengers flying in on the flights from the United States hub.

Nonetheless, customers can already book for flights departing the capital of India on 10th, 12th, and 15th July. Tickets for these trips cost approximately ?57,000 ($763).
In addition to these charter flights, United also wants to perform regular operations from the South Asian nation. The Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) and other authorities are reviewing the request for a scheduled service.
Simple Flying reached out to United for comment on these operations. A spokesperson said that upon government approval, the firm will restart daily service between Delhi and its hubs of San Francisco and Newark. These flights are part of a broader plan to expand its network this summer.

The representative for the airline added the below:

”We are operating three repatriation flights from Delhi to Newark on the 10th, 12th and 15th, and operating them consistent with the current Indian restrictions on international flights departing India. Customers can purchase tickets through our website or United app.”
