People flying from USA to India often look for direct connections for a hassle-free journey. Currently, apart from United Airlines and American Airlines, no US carrier offers any direct flights to India. Notably, Air India is the only Indian airline providing the most direct flights between the two countries. However, this may change soon. Delta Airlines direct flights from Atlanta to Hyderabad may become a reality in the near future. This will add a third American carrier to the list of airlines offering direct flights to India. 

According to reports a government delegation from Hyderabad met the key representatives of Delta Air Lines to discuss the investment opportunities in the Telangana State. The delegation is believed to have requested for a direct flight between Atlanta and Hyderabad during this meeting. 

Will Delta Airlines Direct Flights to Hyderabad Become a Reality? 

Yes, Delta may consider adding a direct flight from Atlanta to Hyderabad. Currently, Hyderabad doesn’t have any direct connection to the USA. Earlier, Air India offered a direct flight from Chicago ORD to Hyderabad but it remains suspended. 

Majority of the people who book Indian Eagle tickets from USA to India express the need for more direct flights. A nonstop flight from Atlanta to Hyderabad will not only be beneficial for the students but other travelers as well. 

The Impact of Russia-Ukraine Conflict 

The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine has led to numerous Western sanctions on Russia. This has even prevented most airlines from using Russian airspace. In a way, it complicates establishing new direct routes. Air India retains the right to use Russian airspace, unlike top Western carriers. This gives it a strategic advantage. If Delta Airlines direct flights to Hyderabad from Atlanta become a reality soon, it is to be seen how the airline plans its route. 

Air India is already planning to start nonstop flights from Dallas to Hyderabad. In case Delta Air Lines proceeds with the proposed direct flight from Atlanta to Hyderabad, it would significantly help in improving connectivity between the two cities.
