The aircraft replaces a Boeing 777-200ER on the once-a-day service, the airline said in a statement. The Boeing 777-300ER is Boeing's latest aircraft model.
"Our customers from India will notice a real difference when they step on board our new 777-300ER aircraft," said Harvinder Singh, United's Country Manager India.
"This plane features our new United Polaris seat, for an enhanced in-flight experience. Deploying this new aircraft on our Mumbai-New York/Newark service underpins United's commitment to the Indian market."
The airline has served in India since 2005 and its daily non-stop services from Mumbai to New York completed 10 years in 2017.
