More non-stop flights between India and USA! Update
A non-stop flight between India and USA provides great convenience without the hassle of transit headaches. Air India and United have non-stop flights from US and India. Air India flights have been a great convenience especially under the COVID-19 scenario. A large number of Michigan residents continue to utilize the Air India flight from Chicago to New Delhi and/or Hyderabad. On Friday November 12th, American Airlines launched non-stop flights between between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport.
Recently it was reported that India’s Vistara Airlines is looking to launch non-stop flights between New Delhi and Newark. It is expected that Air India under new ownership (TATA) will improve connectivity between US with better service.
With significant growth in trade relationships between US and India the potential for demand is likely to increase significantly in the coming years. Furthermore, the growth in Indian American population is also increasing demand. Turkish Airlines, Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways are considering to adding more cities like Detroit to their network.
Please support efforts to launch a non-stop flight from Detroit to India
A serious effort is currently underway to evaluate the launch of a direct non-stop flight from Detroit to India. For the past 20 years, the Indian community has been growing fast and is recognized as the fastest growing ethnic segment in Michigan. Michigan is home to over a 120,000 residents with strong ties to India. Detroit airport is one of the best in the country and serves as a hub for Delta Airlines.
A team of our community members has facilitated preliminary discussions with Delta Airlines and airport executives from Detroit and Hyderabad. Michigan and Telangana Governments are fully on board on making this proposal a reality. Note that Hyderabad has connectivity to 40 Indian cities. Your travel to India will be incredibly seamless and smooth with this flight. The goal is to achieve this in 2022.
