Air Canada Temporary suspended flights

Air Canada Temporary suspended flights between Vancouver and Delhi

Air Canada is temporarily suspending its flight route between Vancouver and Delhi, India. This major step is taken because of a flight path disruption due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

In addition to this, wind and weather conditions in the summer months that make routes to South Asia more difficult will take effect. This is the second key factor to makes Vancouver to Delhi route unviable for Air Canada.

This suspension will start on 2nd June and will remain in action till the 6th of September.

Till now Air Canada offered a direct flight from Vancouver to Delhi. It took around 15 hours of flight duration which is considerably shorter than flights with time-consuming stops in Europe or China.

Now, the flights have been diverting to avoid Russian and Ukrainian airspace, and the extended length means there’s an added stop for refueling. As a result, direct flights are no longer available.

“Air Canada remains committed to the India market and will be resuming non-stop flights between Vancouver and Delhi beginning September 6,” it said. “Air Canada continues to monitor global situations very closely and may reinstate its Vancouver-Delhi route earlier if conditions permit.”

The plus point is the customers who have already booked flights between June 2 and Sept. 6 with Air Canada will be automatically re-scheduled on alternate flights to reach their destination at no additional cost. The new itineraries may have more stops or take longer journey time.

Air Canada said it will continue to run up to 11 weekly flights to India from Toronto and Montreal, which use different flight paths.

There are many other airlines that operate their flight service to Delhi. According to Google Flights, Air India is still offering direct service to Delhi through the summer months.
