As part of its effort to broaden its international network, Air India will begin operating direct flights from Mumbai and Bengaluru to San Francisco in December.

From December 2 through December 15, the airline will resume operating a three times weekly route from Bengaluru to San Francisco, connecting Mumbai with San Francisco.

Air India intends to operate 20 more flights to the US and the UK in order to improve connectivity to those two countries. This year, from October to December, these flights will be implemented gradually.

There will be six extra flights to San Francisco, nine extra flights to London, and five extra flights every week to Birmingham.

According to this, the airline would improve connectivity to Birmingham from Amritsar with two additional flights, while the carrier will also increase connectivity to Delhi-Birmingham with three additional flights each week.

Nine more flights per week will arrive in London, five of which will come from Mumbai, three from Delhi, and one from Ahmedabad.

This will increase the current 34 weekly flights from Air India to the UK to 48 trips. From 34 to 40 flights each week, there will be more flights between India and the US.

“It is a clear signal of our intent, and an early step towards a much bigger aspiration,” Campbell Wilson, CEO & MD, Air India said.
