Air Canada will not operate flights between Delhi and Vancouver from June 3 to September 8, 2022 because suspension is the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and that flights to Canada's densest city are required to use Russian and Ukrainian airspace.

Arun Pandey, Country Head and General Manager - Indian Subcontinent at Air Canada confirmed the development and said the airline will deploy more flights on other routes that fly to the country.

Arun Pandeya further added that the flight suspension will not majorly affect Indian passengers, as they will accommodate passengers with existing bookings, without any additional charges.

Air Canada also issued a statement on this, saying that the Delhi-Vancouver route is operationally disrupted due to extended flight times and a refueling stop, due to the current flight path going around Russian and Ukrainian airspace.

The airline also said that summer wind and weather conditions in South Asia are expected to ease these constraints, making the route impractical during this period.

During this period, when flights are not operating on the same route, Air Canada will continue to operate 11 weekly flights between Canada and India from its gateways in Toronto and Montreal as these routes use different flight paths.
