How long does it take to fly to India?

The flight time from the United States to India will largely depend on your departure and arrival airports. Many airports in the US offer flights to India, and the three most popular are Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). From these three airports, you can get flights to India’s three busiest airports in New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru. The quickest flight from JFK to New Delhi Airport (DEL) will take just over 14h, while if you’re flying from SFO or ORD, expect to be in the air for at least 15 and a halfh. You will only get one-stop flights to Mumbai Airport (BOM), and the quickest from JFK takes about 18 and a halfh, while those from ORD and SFO take anywhere between 19 and 24h.

Can you get nonstop flights to India from the US?

Yes, you can get cheap nonstop flights to India from most of the major airports in the US. JFK offers most nonstop flights to India for those on the east coast, and you can also get some from Newark International Airport (EWR). You can travel with Air India to New Delhi and Mumbai from JFK on these nonstop India flights. It is similar with EWR, with nonstop flights to New Delhi and Mumbai available. If you’re departing for Delhi from the west coast, SFO is the best option, with at least three daily flights to India offered by Air India, Lufthansa, and United Airlines. You can also get direct flights from SFO to Bengaluru, one of the most popular destinations in India. Direct flights from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) to DEL take about 14 and a half hours without any stops. The last option is Chicago, and you can fly nonstop from ORD to Delhi and Hyderabad. The flight to Delhi takes around 14h, and to Hyderabad it takes about 16h.

What are the airports operating flights to India?

The three most popular airports serving USA to India flights are John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK), Chicago International Airport (ORD), and San Francisco Airport (SFO). All three are hubs for international flights and are very busy. JFK is the busiest of the three airports, with the New York to New Delhi route being one the busiest, with around three weekly roundtrips. You can also catch a direct flight from JFK to Mumbai Airport (BOM). If you’re on the west coast, SFO would be more appropriate, and from SFO, you can catch a direct flight to New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru. The other good option for flying to India from the USA is the O’Hare International Airport which has direct flights to New Delhi, Chennai, and Hyderabad.

What are the best places to stop between the USA to India?

There are several layover options for flights to India from the USA, the most common being Doha (DOH), Dubai (DXB), Milan (MXP), London (LHR), and Abu Dhabi (AUH). You can get anywhere from one to three layovers on your flight to India, increasing your flight time by anywhere from four up to nine hours. Unfortunately, there is no significant price drop for flights with layovers compared to those without, but flights with two layovers are a bit cheaper than those with one.

What is the best way to travel around India?

India is a big country with many places to visit, such as Chennai, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Calcutta. However, with lots of transportation options, here’s a rough guide to getting around in India. Air travel is by far the quickest and easiest way of getting between cities in India. Plane tickets are cheap, and planes are faster than most means. However, if you wish to use ground transportation options, travel by train. Train travel will get you to most of the major cities, including Chennai, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Calcutta, and you’ll get to see lots of sights along the way. Buses are the third option. There are certain areas, such as the Himalayas, where trains cannot access but buses can, and they travel more frequently in these areas. Moreover, it saves you the hassle of booking your ticket in advance, but services and prices can vary significantly. Taxis are great for movement within the cities but expensive for out-of-city travel. Finally, for the most convenient trip, consider taking rental cars.

Does a US citizen need a passport or visa to fly to India?

Yes, any US citizen flying to India will need both a valid passport and the correct visa for your visit. Since you cannot get a visa on arrival, you should apply for one at the Indian Embassy or Consulate. You can get an Indian visa for around $86, including processing fees, and this type of visa takes about five days to process. You could also apply for the rush or super rush visas, which cost a bit more but are processed faster. The former costs about $116 and takes three days to process, while the latter will cost you around $151 and will take two days to process.
