Air Canada adding three weekly flights from Pearson Airport in Mississauga to India
Published October 14, 2021 at 9:01 am
Starting tomorrow (Oct. 15), Air Canada is flying to and from India more often out of Pearson Airport in Mississauga.
In what it’s calling a “strategic expansion” of its India services, Air Canada announced this week it’s adding three flights per week from Pearson to Delhi, beginning Oct. 15.
In total, the airline is now up to 10 flights per week to India from Pearson.
Air Canada, which is also introducing a new year-round, non-stop Montreal-to-Delhi route, effective Oct. 31, received the go-ahead from the Canadian Transportation Agency to operate the three additional Pearson-to-Delhi flights between Oct. 15 and next March 26.
All flights will be operated using the carrier’s most modern aircraft, the 298-seat Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, company officials say.
The announcement comes after Pearson Airport, and airports across Canada, once again began accepting flights from India on Sept. 26 after a four-month suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Canada-India market is an important and strategic one for Air Canada. These additional flights and new route demonstrate Air Canada’s anticipation about the promise and growth of the Indian subcontinent, and we also look forward to further strengthening the cultural and business ties between our two countries,” said Mark Galardo, a senior vice-president at Air Canada.
