Canada's largest domestic and international airline, Air Canada has inaugurated its 787 Dreamliner service to Delhi. Canada's flag carrier is among the 20 largest airlines in the world and in 2014 served more than 38 million customers. The new 787 service is the only non-stop flight between Canada and India and is the first to be dedicated for Air Canada's Boeing 787-9 series aircraft, the most modern aircraft in its fleet.
"Air Canada is offering customers the convenience of the only non-stop flight between Canada and India and we are doing so using our newest Boeing 787 Dreamliners, which are revolutionizing long-haul air travel in terms of passenger comfort. This new service will appeal to travelers both doing business in Delhi, the capital region of India and the fourth most populous urban area in the world, and to those who are visiting friends and relatives or exploring India. The new service also allows convenient onward connections within India and throughout Southeast Asia on our Star Alliance partner, Air India, and other interline partners," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.
The service will operate four-times-weekly, going to daily in 2016, using a Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring Air Canada's award-winning, three-cabin service, including the next generation lie-flat seat in International Business Class, a Premium Economy cabin, and enhanced seatback In-Flight Entertainment system available at every seat throughout the aircraft. Flights provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption and, for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access in Toronto, priority boarding and other benefits.
