Spending the Holidays in Puerto Vallarta
Air Canada is expanding its service to India, with a new year-round, non-stop route between Montreal and Delhi and additional flights from Toronto.
Starting October 31, just in time for Diwali celebrations, AC will offer three flights per week to the growing Indian community in Montreal. Flight AC 50 will depart Montreal on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 20:10, arriving in Delhi at 20:00+1. Return flight AC 51 will leave DEL Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 01:55, arriving YUL at 0:600.
AC is the only carrier offering a direct service to Delhi out of Montreal. It's also the leading carrier between the two countries, with daily flights from Vancouver, up to ten flights a week from Toronto and three flights a week from Montreal.
The airline also announced that it is increasing frequency to Delhi from Toronto to ten flights per week beginning October 15. All flights will be operated with Air Canada's most modern aircraft, the 298-seat Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with three cabins of service: Air Canada Signature Class, Premium Economy and Economy class.
"The Canada-India market is an important and strategic one for Air Canada," said Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management.
"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."
Galardo says the announcement confirms Air Canada's commitment to growing its main hubs of Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, each of which offers non-stop service to India.
AC says service to Mumbai will resume when conditions permit.
