With more and more travelers searching for US-India itineraries with short flights, premium airlines are planning to launch nonstop flights between USA and India. At present, nonstop flights from USA to India are operated on six routes, including two by United Airlines and four by Air India. Usually, nonstop flights cost more than direct flights and connecting flights. However, dropping prices of airline tickets to India make it possible for a certain group of travelers to afford nonstop flights between USA and India.
Most of the US to India nonstop flights cover thousands of miles within 14 to 17 hours, which is almost 10 hours shorter than connecting flights. Simple itinerary, convenient baggage handling and less jetlag are a few other advantages of traveling to India on nonstop flights from USA. The same is the reason for the success of Air India’s San Francisco to Delhi nonstop service, which was launched early in 2016. Besides, cheap air tickets to India on nonstop flights from USA are easily available these days at premium Indian travel booking sites, including Indian Eagle.
Nonstop Flights between USA and India:
- Chicago (ORD) to Delhi (DEL) by Air India
- New York (JFK) to Delhi (DEL) by Air India
- San Francisco (SFO) to Delhi (DEL) by Air India
- Washington (IAD) to Delhi (DEL) by Air India

Air India’s Washington DC to New Delhi nonstop service will be launched in July 2017. This new service will be operated thrice a week. Air India is exploring the possibility of introducing nonstop flights from San Francisco to Bengaluru, India.
