Delta Mumbai to New York flight now on sale

Delta inherited the route from Northwest and used to fly to Mumbai through 2016, via Amsterdam. They closed this route blaming the middle east carriers for making it uncompetitive for them. Last year, with their close cooperation with Jet Airways, this new route became a possibility for the airline going forward, with 9W supplying traffic into the Mumbai hub.

Last week, Delta made an announcement about launching the flight in 2019 to Mumbai, flying a Boeing 777LR from New York JFK. Delta will launch service connecting New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport with Mumbai beginning December 22, 2019. Delta states the reason to choose New York as it is the largest American market to India with the largest base of corporate customers.
