AIR CANADA on Tuesday (23) said it would resume its flights to India.
The company announced it will resume its daily, non-stop Toronto-Delhi flights on October 1, (eastbound) and October 3, 2019 (westbound).
The latest move has come a week after Pakistan reopened its airspace for international civil aviation.
The Toronto-Delhi flights will be operated initially with Boeing 787 Dreamliners and beginning October 27, additional capacity will be added to this route with 400-seat Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
Air Canada’s seasonal Toronto-Mumbai flights will operate four times weekly from October 27, 2019, until March 28, 2020, with Boeing 777-200LR aircraft.
Air Canada will have up to 18 weekly flights conveniently connecting a multitude of cities in North America to Delhi from both Toronto and Vancouver, and to Mumbai from Toronto, the company said.
Pakistan had closed its airspace after an attack by a Pakistan-based militant group in Kashmir led to clashes between the two countries.
Air Canada had suspended flights to India in February, as the airspace closure forced long detours that cost airlines millions of dollars.
