Air India is all ready to launch direct flight between New Delhi and Toronto from October 31 onwards this year as informed by one of the representatives of the airlines. The manager of Air India Harry Francis told to the press that the distance between Toronto and New Delhi would now be less as the flight will be direct only.
He further said that the New Delhi will now be enjoying the special place as the hub for all the Air India Passengers. This is because the passengers of Air India will be able to take their flight for different parts of India from New Delhi only. This would prove to be a great comfort for many passengers who have to travel a lot within the country. If there is some passenger who is planning to go to Amritsar via Air India, then he can easily get the flight for Amritsar from New Delhi within two hours only and that too on daily basis. Also, the immigration checks of the passengers would be taken at Amritsar airport only. Francis very clearly said that at Delhi airport, passengers – already checked into at the originating port – would not have to go through immigration checks at all.
As the flight from New Delhi to Toronto is direct now, so the time to reach to Canada will be comparatively short. Like for example if some passenger takes the flight for Canada from IGI airport in Delhi at around 1.30 a.m. (according to the local time), then he will reach Canada by 7.30am on the same day only. Air India is also making special arrangements for the comfort of its passengers such as providing seats with flat beds for business class passengers along with comfortable seats for economic class passengers.
