Montreal Is Getting Direct Flights To & From India 3 Times A Week, Air Canada Announced

Air Canada is making it easier for Montrealers to travel to India. The airline announced it would be introducing new direct flights between Montreal and Delhi beginning October 31 — just in time for Diwali celebrations.

In an October 13 news release, Air Canada said the move is meant to support the "growing Indian community in Montreal."

The non-stop flights are set to be available three times per week on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, year-round.

"We [...] look forward to further strengthening the cultural and business ties between our two countries," said Mark Galardo, senior vice president of network planning and revenue management at Air Canada, in a statement. "Today's announcement also confirms Air Canada's commitment to growing its main hubs of Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, with convenient non-stop service to India from each hub."

Air Canada is the only carrier that offers non-stop service from Montreal to Delhi, according to Galardo.

The airline also announced it's expanding its India services in Toronto by adding additional flights.
