Canada restarts direct flights to India after a long wait

The national capital of Delhi will be the first to be connected with Canada. Air Canada has resumed Delhi-Toronto non-stops wherein WHO-approved vaccinated passengers and Canada PR Visa holders should undergo an RT-PCR or a rapid PCR test within 18 hours before their flight. This shall be conducted at Covid-19 Testing Centre and Lounge at Delhi Airport’s Terminal. Only these specific tests will be accepted, and no other test shall be received from any different clinic within India.

The authorities also withdrew the requirement for a negative RT-PCR report from a third country. And, the first flight from Toronto to Delhi will land at the destination at 9 PM on Monday and will return with the passengers on Tuesday. Air India has also informed us to resume Delhi to Vancouver and Delhi to Toronto direct flights soon.

Along with the additional requirements, the existing conditions remain intact. All the passengers must be double vaccinated recognized by Canadian Health Authorities and Canada Immigration guidelines. The approved vaccines are Johnson, Moderna, Pfizer, and Covishield. All the documents must be uploaded to the ArriveCan website or mobile app before taking your flight.

ON April 23, 2021, Canada had suspended all commercial and private flights from India at the onset of the deadly second wave of Covid-19. This restriction was extended till September 21, 2021.  Due to the restrictions, Indian passengers would take a different route by making a pitstop at a third country before entering Canada. However, this route would force the passengers to take the negative RT-PCR report from the third country. But, now the third country RT-PCR testing rule has been withdrawn by the government.

For smooth testing at the terminal, passengers and Canada PR Visa holders are requested to book an appointment at the testing center at the terminal six hours before the flight. you can choose our free counseling and guidance sessions at 8595338595 or write a mail at [email protected]
