Washington’s Dulles International Airport will get a non-stop flight to India thanks to new routes being added by Air India.
The service would begin in July, with India’s state-owned national carrier planning nonstop service from Delhi. The capital-to-capital route is expected to operate three times a week on Boeing 777 aircraft, The Times of India reports.
Washington Dulles becomes Air India’s fifth U.S. destination, joining Chicago O’Hare, New York JFK, Newark Liberty and San Francisco. Air India would be the only carrier offering nonstop service to India from Washington.
The Dulles service would bring Air India back to Washington for the first time since May 2010, when the airline flew to Dulles “as a tag on its flights into New York”.
