However, there were many new airline routes that were scheduled to start their services on the international level in 2020 but postponed or got canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The year 2020 saw the announcement of two flights to San Francisco from Bengaluru. While Air India is set to launch a twice a week service, scheduled to begin from January 11.
American carrier United Airlines has also announced that it is set to start direct flight service on the same route by the summer of 2021.
