Air Canada inaugurated new, non-stop Toronto-Mumbai service over the weekend, the only non-stop flight from Canada to India’s largest city.
The four-times weekly service is operated with Air Canada’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
“Air Canada is always excited to launch a new route and this is particularly gratifying given Mumbai is India’s largest city and regarded as its financial, commercial and entertainment capital. This flight is the third route we have started to India in less than two years, demonstrating our commitment to this vibrant market as well to our continuing international expansion strategy,” said Benjamin Smith, president, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. “This is the only non-stop service between Canada and Mumbai and positions Air Canada as offering the best coverage of any carrier operating between Canada and India.”
With the new route, Air Canada now offers three Boeing 787 Dreamliner routes between Canada and India, including year-round daily Toronto-Delhi service and seasonal Vancouver-Delhi service, which resumes in October and will be expanded to up to five times weekly this winter. Toronto-Mumbai will operate year-round.
Air Canada Rouge has also launched service to Algiers from Montreal, marking Air Canada non-stop service to Algeria’s capital city, its second destination in North Africa from its Montreal hub.
