Air India, India’s leading airline and a Star Alliance member, continues to expand its global reach with the resumption of its non-stop service between Mumbai and JFK airport in New York from February 14, 2023.

Resuming a service that was suspended in early 2019, the new flight is the third non-stop Air India service from Mumbai to the USA, joining flights to Newark (EWR) and San Francisco (SFO). The resumption is in line with the airline’s concerted endeavor to develop Mumbai as a significant hub, second only to Delhi, providing maximum international connectivity between India and the rest of the world.
