Air India will operate more flights from Delhi to Vancouver (Canada), from three flights per week to daily ones. The announcement will take effect from 31 August.
Because of the higher commuting demand for the India – Canada flight route, the airline decided to increase flight frequency. Additionally, the Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft with a large body and three-class configuration returned to serve passengers.
After Tata group acquired Air India, the airline is currently using aircraft that landed for a period because of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and others.
According to the airline, the progressive restoration of the aircraft allowed it to increase schedule resilience; also, support frequency, and network expansion over the coming months.
CEO Campbell Wilson, Air India MD, said, “This increase in our frequency between Delhi and Vancouver is very welcome for many reasons. It is another sign of recovery from the pandemic and caters to strong customer demand. More importantly, it marks the first step in restoring Air India’s fleet and international network.”
