Air Canada is expanding its seasonal Vancouver to Delhi route to year-round operation.
Citing 'extremely positive' demand, the year-round Dreamliner service will begin June 8, 2018 and is now available for booking.
It is the only direct flight to Delhi from Western Canada.
"Our non-stop Vancouver to Delhi flights together with our non-stop Toronto to Delhi and Mumbai flights represent three year-round routes to India launched within the last two and a half years," said Benjamin Smith, Air Canada's president of passenger airlines.
"Air Canada is committing close to $1.5 billion worth of aircraft between Canada and India, underscoring our commitment to this vibrant market.
The year-round service will depart Vancouver on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, and return from Delhi on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays by Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets.
The nonstop flight is about 14 hours.
The year-round upgrade was lauded by BC Premier John Horgan.
"This new flight helps build on BC's growing business relationships and people-to-people connections with India, the country of origin for over 230,000 British Columbians."
