The new non-stop service is expected to meet the demand of corporate customers for travel to San Francisco and adjoining areas in the US. “Passengers from Bengaluru will enjoy huge benefits travelling to San Francisco as this will enable faster and easier connections,” Air India said in a statement.
The return flight AI-176 from San Francisco to Bengaluru will operate on Saturdays and Tuesdays, leaving San Francisco at 8.30 pm (local time) to arrive in Bengaluru at 2.30 am+1 hours.
