Air Canada’s flights to Delhi from Toronto and Vancouver operating with longer, alternative routings


AIR Canada’s flights to Delhi from both Toronto and Vancouver resumed last night and are operating with longer, alternative routings, Air Canada spokesperson Angela Mah told The VOICE on Friday.

Return flights from Delhi to Toronto and Vancouver will also operate with alternate routings that entail a stop in Copenhagen for re-crewing and aircraft refueling.

Air Canada’s flights to Mumbai are operating as normal since the flights take a different routing.

Air Canada operates daily service from Toronto and Vancouver to Delhi and four times weekly from Toronto to Mumbai.

Earlier in the week, because of the closure of Pakistani airspace by its government, one Air Canada flight en route to Delhi on Tuesday night (February 26) turned back over the Atlantic Ocean and returned to Toronto on Wednesday, while a second flight from Vancouver to Delhi that was to depart on Tuesday night was cancelled.
