American carrier Delta Air Lines on Friday said the airline company will operate Boeing 777-200 aircraft between Mumbai and New York.
In an interview to CNBC-TV18's Alisha Sachdev, Jimmy Eichelgruen, director of sales for Africa, Middle East and India, said, "Our aircraft can take 12 tonne of cargo per flight and it is a proven fact that when an airline does serve two countries or two big centres, it does allow us to exploit the market."
Speaking about the Delta-Vistara interline agreement, he said, "It has just started in-line with the startup of our flight. We now have what is called an interline agreement with Vistara. We also have an interline agreement with Air India and that will allow passengers to connect for example from flights from Vistara on to our flight onto the US. So, that is a step in the right direction."
