Air Canada's B787 Vancouver-Delhi Flights Become Year-Round

Air Canada has confirmed that its seasonal non-stop Vancouver-Delhi flights are to become year-round starting 8 June 2018.

"Air Canada's decision to extend their Delhi service throughout the year is fantastic news! Our local community will now have the opportunity to travel on the revolutionary Dreamliner year-round," said Craig Richmond, President & CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. "I'd like to extend congratulations for this accomplishment—it is no easy feat to secure year-round service so soon after launching seasonal service. We are thrilled that Air Canada is seeing such great success at YVR, their preferred trans-Pacific hub."

Air Canada now operates three year-round routes to India: Vancouver to Delhi as well as Toronto to Delhi and Mumbai.

Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada, said, "Customer response to our nonstop Vancouver-Delhi seasonal flights initially launched in 2016 has been extremely positive, and we are very pleased to extend the only flights between Western Canada and India to year-round beginning in June. Our flights to Delhi from our YVR trans-Pacific hub onboard our state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner offers the shortest elapsed flying time from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles to the Indian subcontinent, and coupled with our streamlined and seamless connections process at YVR, means a savings of 3-5 hours compared to journeys connecting in Europe or Asia."
