4 Reasons Why Delta’s JFK Hub is Best for Indian Travelers
Delta’s getting set to restart nonstop service between Mumbai and the United States, with daily nonstop service to New York starting December 24. Here are four reasons why Delta’s New York-JFK hub is best for customers flying to the U.S. from India:
- New York is the largest U.S. market to India: Delta’s network from New York-JFK allows for convenient connections for more than 50 Indian-American communities throughout the United States, Canada and Latin America.
- Delta is New York’s No. 1 airline: Delta has grown its presence in New York City by over 65 percent in the last 10 years. Today the airline offers more than 200 daily departures from its global gateway at JFK to more than 80 destinations in 30 countries.
- Delta has invested significantly in the New York airport experience: The airline first unveiled its $1.4 billion, state-of-the-art international gateway at JFK’s Terminal 4 in 2013 and added 11 more gates in 2015. Elsewhere in the city, Delta just opened its first of four new concourses comprising its new $3.9 billion facility at LaGuardia Airport.
- JFK T4 features a range of customer amenities: The terminal features a wide range of dining options, and a flagship Delta Sky Club® will soon feature additional seating, a reimagined food area, and retractable roof for its outdoor Sky Deck. Recently launched biometric boarding gates at the terminal enable customers flying direct to Mumbai to board using facial recognition technology rather than scanning a boarding pass and showing their passport. And, Terminal 4 is a valued partner in sustainability: every restaurant in the facility composts. Plus, new water-saving technologies have cut down on usage by one-third – saving 20 million gallons each year.
