American Airlines resumes direct service from Big Apple to New Delhi
AMERICAN Airlines Cargo has further expanded its international network with the introduction of service to New Delhi, starting on November 12, 2021.
This marks the airline’s return to the Indian capital city with a daily service from John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL).
“This expansion will be followed by daily service between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and Kempegowda International Airport Bengaluru (BLR) in early 2022, linking two critical global technology markets with the US and beyond,” the airline said in a statement.
The service will operate using a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
“The freight forwarder community in India is eager to support the launch of this international service that will connect many commodities, such as leather products, textiles, ready-made garments, pharmaceuticals, machinery, and technology parts with destinations around the world via JFK,” the airline said.
“India is a really exciting market for our cargo business and we are delighted to be returning to these key destinations. There has long been a demand from our customers in the region for a direct link with New York, and we anticipate strong support for the service,” said Tim Isik, sales director – EMEA & APAC for American Airlines Cargo.
This will be the first time American has served the country since 2012.
