United Airlines begins daily flights Delhi-Chicago

United Airlines launched a daily nonstop flight between Delhi and Chicago on Saturday, according to a company statement.

The airline will operate a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft between the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi and the center of its hometown at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.

With the introduction of the service, United will operate four daily nonstop flights from India.

“The airline also operates daily service throughout the year from Mumbai and New Delhi to New York / Newark, and from New Delhi to San Francisco,” the statement said.

United also hopes to introduce a new daily nonstop service between Bengaluru and San Francisco starting May 8 next year, it said.

International scheduled passenger flights have been suspended in India since March 23 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, special international flights have been operating under the Vande Bharat Mission since May and under the air bubble arrangements formed between India and around 22 countries since July.
