United Airlines expands its presence with US-India flights

By The SATimes News Service

United Airlines remains the largest US carrier to fly between the US and India with flights to Delhi and Mumbai (BOM). Now, United is expanding its presence in the booming South Asian country.

Starting in winter 2020, United is planning daily 787-9 flights from Chicago O’Hare (ORD) to New Delhi (DEL). On the route, United will try and leverage its connections plus the second-highest population of Indian Americans in the US that live in Chicago and the surrounding areas.

Capitalizing on the robust IT industry in Bangalore (BLR), United will launch daily 787-9 flights to San Francisco starting in spring 2021. United is beating out American Airlines by a couple of months with flights to BLR as the latter plans a Seattle to Bengaluru flight from winter 2021. Already, United flies to New Delhi from San Francisco.
