Air India to operate additional flights to US amid huge rush of students. Details here

Air India will increase its flight frequency to the US from the first week of August. In a tweet, the flag carrier said: “Air India will operate additional flights between New Delhi & Newark on 6th,13th, 20th & 27th August ‘21.

These are in addition to the existing flights operating in this sector. Bookings open through AI Website, Booking Offices, Call Centre & Authorised Travel Agents.” This news comes as a major relief to a large number of Indian students headed to the US for higher studies.

Travel restrictions imposed by the United States has led to a situation where students travelling to the US found themselves with significantly fewer travel options and inflated ticket prices

Air India operated 40 flights a week prior to the US government order in May 2020 banning travellers from India due to rising Covid-19 cases.
