Delta flights to launch in India by 2019

Delta Air Lines has announced it will resume nonstop flights next year between United States and India’s financial capital, Mumbai.

The airline is crediting recent U S agreements with Qatar and the United Arab Emirates over alleged subsidies to three big Arabian Gulf carriers that also fly to India. Delta said it will announce the schedule details later this year. It also has plans to sell other flights within India on partner Jet Airways.

Atlanta-based Delta stopped their services to India in 2015, leaving United Airlines as the only US carrier flying to Mumbai and Delhi.

Trump administration deals with Qatar and the UAE will require Qatar Airways, Emirates and Etihad Airways to improve financial disclosures. The Gulf carriers say they don’t plan new flights to and from U S and destinations outside their own countries, reported Khaleej Times.
