Delta Air Lines has announced they’ll be launching brand new service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Mumbai, India starting on December 22, 2019.

Delta will use one of their newly renovated Boeing 777-200LR aircraft on this route, which features 28 Delta One Suites, 48 Premium Select seats, and 220 seats in economy all with seatback entertainment and Gogo Ku Wi-Fi.

Per Delta,

Delta will launch service connecting New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport with Mumbai beginning Dec. 22. This route establishes a link between the financial capitals of two large trade partners and boosts competition, choice and options for customers traveling between the United States and India.

The JFK-Mumbai flight will be operated out of Delta’s premier international gateway at New York-JFK, and will offer convenient connections from more than 50 communities throughout the United States, Canada and Latin America. Demand for flights between the U.S. and India has increased significantly in the last decade, and New York is the largest U.S. market to India with the largest base of corporate customers.

Delta first offered service between the U.S. and Mumbai beginning in 2006, but was forced to suspend the service in 2009 as illegally subsidized Middle East carriers made the route untenable.
