AC Expands Eastern Canada Capacity To India
Air Canada has unveiled details of its strategic expansion of its India services, with additional flights from Toronto, and a new year-round, non-stop route between Montreal and Delhi.
Beginning Oct. 31, Air Canada will offer three flights per week to the growing Indian community in Montreal.
Additionally, it is increasing frequency to Delhi from Toronto to 10 flights per week beginning Oct. 15.
All flights will be operated with Air Canada’s most modern aircraft, the 298-seat Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner featuring a choice of three cabins of service: Air Canada Signature Class, Premium Economy and Economy class.
Mark Galardo, senior vice-president, network planning and revenue management for Air Canada, said that: “The Canada-India market is an important and strategic one for Air Canada. These additional flights and new route demonstrate Air Canada’s anticipation about the promise and growth of the Indian subcontinent– and we also look forward to further strengthening the cultural and business ties between our two countries.”
Galardo went on to explain that the move “also confirms Air Canada’s commitment to growing its main hubs of Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, with convenient non-stop service to India from each hub. Air Canada is the only carrier offering a direct service to Delhi out of Montreal, allowing for easy connections through our extensive network. We continue to focus on the growing visiting friends and relatives’ market and this capacity expansion is a response to increasing demand.”
As the leading carrier between the two countries, Air Canada offers daily flights from Vancouver, up to 10 flights a week from Toronto and three flights a week from Montreal. The airline’s service to Mumbai will resume when conditions permit.
