Air Canada to expand services to India
October 13, 2005
Air Canada is to expand its service to India with the launch of daily codeshare flights to Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay. Flights will commence 30 October 2005 and be operated by the carrier's future Star Alliance partner SWISS via Zurich.
The same day, Air Canada will introduce its own daily flights from Toronto to Delhi via Zurich, on which SWISS will sell seats on a codeshare basis. Tickets for these flights are already available for purchase.
The growth of Air Canada's network to India via Switzerland will allow the carrier to re-introduce year-round service to Zurich from Toronto while improving its schedule to Delhi with an increase to daily flights, replacing its current three-times weekly non-stop service from Toronto. In addition, Air Canada will offer daily flights from Montreal to Zurich on a codeshare basis, operated by SWISS.
"This is great news for Air Canada customers as we improve air service between Canada and India, facilitating travel and trade in this important market," said Yves Dufresne, Vice President, International, Alliances and Regulatory Affairs. "Together with SWISS, our future Star Alliance partner, Air Canada will offer expanded choices and convenient schedules linking Toronto and Montreal to both Delhi and Mumbai with convenient one-stop service. Moreover, our customers will additionally benefit from the re-introduction of non-stop services between Toronto and Zurich on a year-round basis featuring our premium Executive First product.
