Air India to Soon Fly Over Pacific Ocean to San Francisco, Save Fuel and Time


The regulatory nod comes as a boost for the national carrier, which would be doubling the frequency of its Delhi-San Francisco direct flights to six per week from November. Air India would also be the first Indian carrier to operate on the Pacific region route where weather conditions and speed of winds would help the airline in reducing fuel burn and the overall journey time.


Saving significant fuel costs and time, Air India will soon start flying over the Pacific Ocean region for its lucrative direct services to San Francisco from here with aviation regulator DGCA approving the new route. Approving the request from Air India for services through the new route, the directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) has issued a detailed operational circular.
