United Airlines, an American carrier, has announced plans to increase its flight services between Delhi and New York/Newark, doubling the frequency to twice daily starting 29 October this year. The enhanced service will align with the existing year-round offering, operated with the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
The move comes amid growing demand for connectivity between India and the US, reflecting the strengthening economic ties between the two nations. United’s latest addition cements its position as the leading American carrier providing services from India to the US during winter.
United also holds the distinction of being the only US airline to operate the 787 Dreamliner from India. The carrier sees This expansion as a strategic initiative to capitalize on the increasing travel needs and leverage its innovative fleet capabilities. United Airlines underscored its commitment to facilitating robust connections between these key global markets in a statement.
The decision is likely to be well-received by business travellers seeking more flexible options and enhanced connectivity. The potential economic implications of this move also signal a broader trend of growing global mobility, with airlines navigating the recovery phase following the industry challenges posed by the pandemic.
In the competitive landscape of international air travel, United’s increase in flight frequency underscores its focus on customer satisfaction and its ambitions to play a key role in fostering international trade and relationships.
