Air India is all set to resume its non stop flight operations between Bengaluru and San Fransico (SF) from December 2, almost eight months after it suspended the operations due to Covid-19 restrictions and due to poor demand among passengers during the course of the pandemic.

The new non-stop service is expected to meet the demand of corporate customers for travel to SFO and adjoining areas in the US.
