Air Canada to Increase Toronto-Delhi Flights

Air Canada has unveiled plans to increase its new Toronto-Delhi non-stop service from four times weekly to daily service beginning 30 October 2016.

 Air Canada's new non-stop service between Toronto and Delhi, set to be launched 1 November 2015 with four weekly flights, is the airline's first route to be dedicated for Boeing 787-9 series aircraft.

Air Canada will receive a total of 29 new 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft by 2019, in addition to eight 787-8 aircraft already in operation, as part of the carrier's fleet renewal and international expansion from its global hub at Toronto Pearson airport.

"Customer response to our announcement of non-stop Dreamliner service between Toronto and Delhi has been very positive," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada. "Air Canada's strategy to grow our Toronto Pearson hub and international presence will continue to gain momentum as we continue to take delivery of Boeing 787 Dreamliners which are revolutionizing long-haul air travel. The operating economics of these new aircraft make this service feasible and it will be the first route dedicated to the larger, 787-9 version of this aircraft which will begin entering our fleet later this summer." 

Flights are timed for convenient connections both within Air Canada's extensive North American network and in India on Air India or other interline partners to such cities as Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, and to other destinations throughout Southeast Asia.
