United Airlines celebrates the 10th anniversary of its service to India


United Airlines celebrated the 10th anniversary of its inaugural service to India. The U.S. carrier launched its services to the country in November 2005 with the launch of Boeing 777 flights from New York’s Newark Liberty International Airport to Delhi. United, which merged with Continental in 2010, now operates daily flights from Newark to both Delhi and Mumbai. So far, the airline has flown over three million passengers on more than 12,700 flights between the U.S. and India.

The anniversary was hosted by Dave Hilfman, United’s Senior Vice President of worldwide sales, at Delhi’s Imperial Hotel. “We thank all the customers who have flown with us over the past decade, our travel industry partners, and of course our sales, marketing and operations teams here in India. We look forward to continued success in the future,” said Hilfman.
