Air Canada resumes flight operations to Delhi post four months of COVID-19 lull

After a four-month hiatus, Canada restarts flights to India. In response to a passenger’s question about the restoration of flights to India, Air Canada announced on Twitter that flights to Delhi have resumed. Air Canada responded to a Twitter user, “Yes, the route is resuming.” Passengers traveling to Canada (Toronto) must have an RT-PCR or Rapid PCR test taken no more than 18 hours before departure, according to Air Canada.

Air Canada, Canada’s largest airline, has resumed operations in India following a four-month hiatus caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. “The only accepted COVID-19 tests are an RT-PCR test or a fast PCR test done at the COVID-19 Testing Centre & Lounge across from Terminal 3 at Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi no more than 18 hours before your departing Air Canada aircraft to Canada,” the airline said.

“Either of these exams is required by Air Canada. No other test from any other clinic in India, even if you are connecting from a different city, will be accepted,” it stated. Travelers can also fly provided they have proof of a certified positive PCR test result acquired in a third country between 14 and 18 days previous to their intended departure, according to the website. In this instance, one must seek entry and stay for at least a fortnight in a third country.

The airline has been unable to operate in India since April of this year due to an unexpected increase of COVID cases. Air Canada AC-42 is currently on its route from Toronto to Delhi, according to flight radar, and is anticipated to arrive tonight. In addition, according to Air Canada’s Covid testing standards, a traveler “may also be eligible to travel if you submit proof of a certified positive PCR test result taken between 14 and 180 days before your scheduled departure flight to Canada.”

The Air Bubble agreement between 28 countries, including Canada, allows Air Canada to operate flights to India. In addition, according to the Air Canada Covid testing standards, a traveler “may also be eligible to travel if you submit proof of a certified positive PCR test result taken between 14 and 180 days before your scheduled departure flight to Canada.”

The necessity for a negative RT-PCR report from a third nation is no longer in place. Air India may soon begin nonstop flights between Delhi and Vancouver and Delhi and Toronto. “In addition to the above-mentioned new restrictions, the following travel conditions continue to apply: All travelers must be immunized twice. Canada recognizes just the following vaccines: Johnson / Moderna / Pfizer/Covishield. All documentation must be uploaded to https://www.arrivecan-online.com/ prior to departure. Please visit the Government of Canada’s website at www.canada.ca for more information and updates.”
