Air Canada will begin a non-stop service from Toronto to Delhi, India, beginning in November 2015.
The new route is the first to be dedicated for the airline’s Boeing 787-9 series aircraft, and the flights will open new opportunities for the Indian subcontinent to get to Canada.
The Indian subcontinent is the largest international market that isn’t served by Air Canada, so the airline has introduced this service to tackle market demand.
Tickets for the new route have begun sale already, and the service will operate four times weekly beginning at the start of November next year.
Air Canada’s Boeing 787-9 utilitises its award winning three cabin service, including the next generation lie-flat seat in International business class.
Flights will provide Aeroplan accumulation and redemption as well as priority check-in for those passengers who are eligible.
Air Canada has timed the flights to maximize convenience between connections across Canada and the Indian subcontinent.
The airline serves or has announced to service a total of 65 destinations internationally, spanning over five continents, spawning from its Toronto global hub.
