Air Canada Adding New Montreal To New Delhi Route

Air Canada looks to be starting a new direct service from Montreal to New Delhi starting this Spring. While there is yet to be an official announcement from the carrier, travelers can now book this route on the Air Canada website. Here’s everything we know about the new service.

Air Canada is planning to connect the largest city in Quebec to the Indian capital soon. The airline has begun listing a thrice-weekly service from New Delhi to Montreal starting from 18th April. When confirmed, this would mark Air Canada’s third direct route from India after Toronto and Vancouver.

The new service, listed as AC 50 and 51, will be flown using the trusted Boeing 787-9, which also flies other routes between India and Canada. The aircraft features a three-class layout with economy, premium economy, and business class.

Currently, AC 51 will depart New Delhi at 07:00 AM on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, landing in Montreal at 11:30 AM. The return flight will leave Montreal at 19:20 on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, landing in Delhi at 17:55 the next day. Flight time takes 13 to 14 hours each way (depending on the direction).

Last October, Air India announced its six-month schedule between India and Canada, the first time it had done so since the pandemic. Most schedules have been only for few months or less. The long-term planning still falls under the travel bubble agreement and does allow airlines to establish semi-normal schedules on their routes.
