Air India has recommenced flights between Delhi and Toronto. The resumption of flights by Air India between the two cities comes as the airline looks to fill gaps in international routes out of India following the demise of Jet Airways. The flights will run three times a week and the first flight left Delhi on Wednesday, September 25, 2019. And Airways Magazine notes that inaugural flight was operated by Air India’s garish “Celebrating India” Boeing 777-300ER. We’ve reported on this plane’s unique livery in Simple Flying. Air India is focusing on their country’s cultural landmarks and rich cultural heritage. It is definitely eye-catching. Air India previously flew to Toronto but exited the route seven years ago. Jet Airways flew the route more recently but pulled out earlier this year when that airline was in its death throes. There is a sizeable Indian diaspora in Toronto with India one of the largest single source of migrants to the Greater Toronto area. With Jet Airways off the route and Air India keen to expand and exploit opportunities from Jet Airways’ collapse, Air India has stepped into the breach and are sending their 777-300ER out over the North Pole and into Canada.
