Air Canada : Starts New One-Stop Flights Between Toronto and Mumbai
With the start of the winter season on October 30, Air Canada, the national airline of Canada, has introduced new one-stop flights between Toronto and Mumbai that operate via London Heathrow.
The airport pair has been reinstated after being closed for 31 years as part of a longer route.
The one-stop flight via London comes at a time when Air Canada was planning a nonstop flight from Toronto to Mumbai to target Canada’s largest unserved Indian market. However, it didn’t, presumably due to the consequences of flying over Ukraine and Russia.
“Toronto on your mind? We are excited to announce that #MumbaiAirport is now further connected to this fascinating city. Congratulations, Air Canada on starting daily flights via London,” said Mumbai Airport in a Tweet.
