Kennedy International Airport (JFK), and San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

What are the airports operating flights to India?

The three most popular airports serving USA to India flights are John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK), Chicago International Airport (ORD), and San Francisco Airport (SFO). All three are hubs for international flights and are very busy. JFK is the busiest of the three airports, with the New York to New Delhi route being one the busiest, with around three weekly roundtrips. You can also catch a direct flight from JFK to Mumbai Airport (BOM). If you’re on the west coast, SFO would be more appropriate, and from SFO, you can catch a direct flight to New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru.

What are the best places to stop between the USA to India?

You can get anywhere from one to three layovers on your flight to India, increasing your flight time by anywhere from four up to nine hours.

What is the best way to travel around India?

India is a big country with many places to visit, such as Chennai, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Calcutta. However, with lots of transportation options, here’s a rough guide to getting around in India. Air travel is by far the quickest and easiest way of getting between cities in India. Plane tickets are cheap, and planes are faster than most means. However, if you wish to use ground transportation options, travel by train. Train travel will get you to most of the major cities, including Chennai, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Calcutta, and you’ll get to see lots of sights along the way. Buses are the third option. There are certain areas, such as the Himalayas, where trains cannot access but buses can, and they travel more frequently in these areas. Moreover, it saves you the hassle of booking your ticket in advance, but services and prices can vary significantly. Taxis are great for movement within the cities but expensive for out-of-city travel. Finally, for the most convenient trip, consider taking rental cars.

Does a US citizen need a passport or visa to fly to India?

Yes, any US citizen flying to India will need both a valid passport and the correct visa for your visit. Since you cannot get a visa on arrival, you should apply for one at the Indian Embassy or Consulate. You can get an Indian visa for around $86, including processing fees, and this type of visa takes about five days to process. You could also apply for the rush or super rush visas, which cost a bit more but are processed faster. The former costs about $116 and takes three days to process, while the latter will cost you around $151 and will take two days to process.
