Direct flights between Canada and India now suspended until September 26

TRAVEL agencies were left in a dilemma on Tuesday when they were notified by Air Canada that direct flights between Canada and India had been further suspended until September 26. Meanwhile, an Air Canada flight from Vancouver and another from Toronto had already left for India on Tuesday morning.

Paul Gill of Gill International Travel in Surrey had told the VOICE on Monday that Air Canada had informed them on Saturday that non-stop flights between Vancouver and Delhi as well as between Toronto and Delhi were to resume on Tuesday.

Tickets were being sold on Monday and the first flight from Vancouver to Delhi took off from Vancouver International Airport at 12:10 a.m. on Tuesday (September 21).

Gill told this newspaper on Tuesday that Air Canada told him that they would clarify matters on Wednesday.
