Air India’s Washington-Delhi flight: a 7,480-mile ‘bridge’ that’ll be covered in 14 hours.
DULLES, Virginia: In a welcome development enhancing connectivity, Air India announced on Friday that it will operate direct flights thrice a week from Washington to Delhi, beginning in July, if not earlier.
The national capital region is all set to become Air India’s fifth US destination, following New York, Newark, Chicago and San Francisco. India’s state-owned national carrier will be the only airline offering nonstop service, on its Boeing 777 aircraft, linking the capitals of the world’s largest and oldest democracy. And quite expeditiously, given the distance, duration of the flight is about 14 hours.
