Bangalore Express to get competition

Some welcome news for the disenchanted Indian Travellers.

WASHINGTON: Long suffering Air India loyalists flying between India and the US will soon have option of forgoing layovers in Europe and East Asia with the introduction of several direct, non-stop flights between the two countries over the next few months.

The third route to be introduced later this year or early 2008 will link San Francisco, hub for Silicon Valley, with Bangalore, India’s Silicon Plateau.

This direct non-stop will muscle into a heavily trafficked route currently dominated by Lufthansa, whose flight via Frankfurt is dubbed the “Bangalore Express” because it shuttles techies between the two IT hubs.
