More flights to India from the U.S.

Continental Airlines became the first airline to fly non-stop to India from the United States on Monday, with an inaugural flight from Newark Liberty International Airport to Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport. These non-stop flights will cut traveling time to Delhi by more than two hours compared to a stop-over flight.

Airlines throughout the country are rapidly increasing international routes, and India has become a popular destination.

As reported in USA Today, American Airlines has announced the start of a Chicago-Delhi service, set to begin on November 15.

And with the popularity of newly-launched luxury airlines such as Eos and MAXjet, the traditional carriers are offering greater in-flight choices for long-haul flights in order to keep up. Menus on the Indian flights will offer a variety of food to appeal to fliers from both countries and a luxurious in-flight service.

The Continental flights depart every day at 8:50pm and arrive in Delhi at 9:15pm the following day. The return flight departs Delhi daily at 11:45pm and arrives at Liberty at 5:05am, the following day. More information about the American Airlines flights will be given when available.
