United extends suspension of India flights till October 26

Date: 16-07-2019
Subject: United extends suspension of India flights till October 26
NEW DELHI: United has extended cancellation of its daily flights from Newark (EWR) to Delhi and Newark to Mumbai till October 26. 

United spokesman Jonathan Guerin said: “Due to the continued restriction of Pakistani airspace, we are extending our suspension of Delhi and Mumbai service until October 26, 2019. We are contacting our customers to provide this update and assisting those who may need to make other travel arrangements, including rebooking on other airlines or offering full refunds. We continue to be in close contact with all government authorities in order to provide our customers with the latest updates and most efficient travel experience under these circumstances.”

United had suspended the Delhi flight on April 5 due to “continued closure of Pakistani airspace” and on June 21 the Mumbai flight was suspended due to US restrictions on overflying Iran airspace. Earlier this month, United had said the two flights would resume on September 1.

But with Pakistan  keeping its airspace closed for overflying since February 27 and restrictions in place for Iran, United has further extended the suspension of its India operations. 

As of now, Air India and United are the only two airlines with direct flights between India and the US. With United suspending its India operations till October 26 now, AI is the only airlines with direct flights between India and US. Although the closure of Pakistan airspace has meant AI’s flights from Delhi to US East Coast have to take a fuelling stop in Europe. On the way back to India, these flights fly in nonstop.

Another American carrier, Delta, will resume Mumbai-New York JFK nonstop from December 22. Delta had operated this route from 2006 to 2009. United will introduce a daily nonstop seasonal service between Delhi and its west coast hub of San Francisco (SFO) from December 7, 2019, through the end of March 2020. It plans to resume the seasonal SFO-Delhi service in late-October 2020 for the winter season. Depending on the response this flight gets, United will decide on making it year-round.
