A few days back, the new Civil Aviation Minister, Hardeep Singh Puri announced that Air India would restart flights to Toronto. At that time we knew that Air India will operate 3x weekly 777-300ER flights on Amritsar-Delhi-Toronto route from September 27, 2019, but no schedule was published nor was the flight open for bookings.
Air India has now started accepting bookings for the new non-stop flight to Toronto from Delhi. The schedule for the flight is,
AI187 DEL0300 – 0845YYZ 77W 135
AI188 YYZ1145 – 1230(+1 day)DEL 77W 135
The Amritsar-Delhi connection leg isn’t open for bookings yet. Maybe they will offer connections using existing flights, AI 115/16 on Delhi-Amritsar route. Air India will operate a three class 777-300ER with 4 first class seats, 35 business class seats and 303 economy class seats. A roundtrip economy class ticket starts at INR 91K.
