Delta Air Lines Mumbai-New York direct flight services will resume from December 24, 2019. The route will be served by a newly renovated Boeing 777-200LR, with seatback entertainment throughout, Wi-Fi connectivity and free mobile messaging.
At present, Air India is the only domestic operator offering direct connectivity to John F. Kennedy International Airport from Mumbai with thrice-a-week service between the two destinations.
