DSC_0498Delta Air Lines announced that it will begin new service from New York City to Mumbai at the end of December.

The non-stop service will be the carrier’s first to the country in over ten years, although the carrier offered service via Amsterdam as recently as 2015.

Flights will leave John F. Kennedy International Airport at 9:15 p.m. EDT and arrive at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport at 10:50 p.m. local time the next day. Return flights will leave Mumbai at 12:50 a.m. and arrive at JFK at 6:35 p.m. the same day.

The Atlanta-based airline will operate the service using ultra long-range Boeing 777-200LR aircraft that have been updated with 28 new Delta One business-class seats, 48 Delta Premium Select premium-economy seats, as well as 90 Comfort+ premium-economy lite seats, and 122 seats in coach.

The airline also said that it also plans to expand its codeshare with Jet Airways to offer convenient connections to other Indian destinations. The expansion is also subject to government approval.
