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
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."
