Following the relaxation of Government of Canada prohibitions on non-stop flights from India, Air Canada announced today the resumption of its non-stop flights to and from Delhi, India. Today marks the resumption of the airline’s flights from Delhi to Toronto and Vancouver.
“People are anxious to reunite with family and friends, and we are delighted to begin service from India to our Toronto and Vancouver hubs immediately following the Government of Canada’s easing of restrictions.
We remain focused on the growing visiting friends and relatives market, and with long-standing cultural and business ties between Canada and India expected to grow in the coming years, Air Canada remains strongly committed to this important Asia-Pacific market,” said Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management at Air Canada.
Air Canada is the most popular airline between the two countries. Air Canada has offered flights from Toronto and Vancouver to Delhi and from Toronto to Mumbai since 2015.
As market conditions permit, the airline intends to launch new nonstop flights from Montreal to Delhi and restore service to Mumbai.
