Air India to launch non-stop Delhi-LA flight

Hollywood will soon be just 16 hours away from Delhi. Air India is planning a non-stop on Delhi-Los Angeles route from September. The move comes after the huge success of its San Francisco non-stop, the only direct service between India-California. AI is also planning to start flights to Africa after several years.

AI chairman Ashwani Lohani said in a Facebook post: “To Washington from 7th July; Stockholm from 15th August and Los Angeles from 1st September to be followed by Tel Aviv , Dallas and Nairobi sometime later during the year 2017 itself.“ Apart from Washington, dates are tentative for other sectors

AI is witnessing a surge in demand for its US flights after America disallowed passengers on Gulf carriers -which have the lion's share of traffic on India-US route -from carrying electronics bigger than a mobile phone on the aircraft due to security concerns.
