Air India might become first Indian flight to fly over North Pole with New Delhi-San Francisco

` Air India’s New Delhi to San Francisco flight could become the first Indian airline to fly over the
North PoleQuite a few international airlines use the North Pole route but none of the Indian
airlines has ever used it.
`This all started when the Directorate General of Civil Aviation(DGCA), aviation regulator of India,
issued a circular asking if any Indian airlines would be interested in flying over the North Pole and
Air India showed interest.
`The perk of flying over the North Pole is that it saves fuel and time. At the moment, the route that
the New Delhi to San Francisco flight takes, it goes over Bangladesh, Myanmar, China,
and Japan before it crosses the Pacific Ocean to enter the United States of America.
This route takes the flight 17 hours of flying to reach its destination.
