American Airlines to start JFK-Delhi nonstop from October 31, Bengaluru-Seattle this winter

New Delhi: American Airlines (AA) — the only US major not to have a presence in the India market — will start a nonstop on New York (JFK)-Delhi route from October 31. The airline had earlier announced Bengaluru-Seattle which was to be launched last winter and had to be deferred due to the pandemic by a year. To be sure, these plans depend on how the pandemic situation pans out in the coming months.

“Beginning October 31, American will launch nonstop service from New York (JFK) to New Delhi on a Boeing 777-200 to meet the strong local demand. With its Qatar Airways partnership and previously announced Seattle to Bengaluru, American will offer customers more ways to fly between the US and India… Flights to Delhi will connect customers to India’s capital three times per week, and then daily during the holiday peak from November 17 to January 3,” AA said in a statement.

American’s chief revenue officer Vasu Raja said: “Our global partnerships are designed to grow our network to benefit our customers, team members, and investors. Since the inception of our partnership with JetBlue, we have committed to offering customers more flights, more destinations and a better experience when traveling.”
