Air Canada announced a strategic expansion of its India services
Beginning today, October 15th, Air Canada will increase the frequency of flights to Delhi from Toronto to ten flights per week. Also, the airline announced a new direct flight between Montreal and Delhi.
“Starting October 31, just in time for Diwali celebrations, Air Canada will offer three flights per week to the growing Indian community in Montreal” said the airline in a news release.
The airline also pointed out the importance of its Canada-India market and its efforts to strengthen the cultural and business ties between the two countries.
Passengers from India
This announcement comes several weeks after Canada resumed direct flights from India to Canada, on September 27. It is important to note that passengers travelling on those flights must:
- be eligible to enter Canada;
- obtain a pre-departure negative COVID-19 molecular test result from the Genestrings Laboratory. This Laboratory is above the metro station in the Airport Connect Building (ACB) at the Indira Gandhi International Airport;
- perform the test within 18 hours before their scheduled departure;
- present the test report with a QR code issued by this laboratory to the air operator before boarding.
Alternatively, travellers who have previously tested positive for COVID-19 can present a positive molecular test issued by a certified laboratory in India. The date of the collection must have been between 14 and 180 days before their scheduled departure to Canada.
In addition, travellers who depart via an indirect route must obtain a valid negative test from a third country. Of course, they need to take the test before continuing their journey to Canada and within 72 hours of departure. You can find more information on entry requirements here.
