Canada gets its first non-stop to India

Canada yesterday got its first non-stop connection to India, with the launch of Air Canada's four-times-a-week flight AC70. The flight uses one of Air Canada's brand-new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.


The Toronto-to-Delhi flight will increase to a daily service next year. The plane is set up as a 3-cabin service, with business class, premium economy and economy sections. The flight is expected to draw business both from people visiting relatives in India, vacationers, and business travelers to an increasingly important economic partner for Canada.


Air Canada's president pointed out that "This route is an important addition to our ongoing international expansion. India is the largest market that until today was not served by Air Canada so the start of service to Delhi strategically enhances our international network, anchored at our Toronto-Pearson global hub."


As the Air Canada graphic above indicates, the 787 opens many possible routes for the airline, and officials say they expect more soon.

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations

So you’ll probably get the super-new plane…noticed after posting that some of the flights for now are being flown by a 787-8, but starting in February, it will be the -9…

Green with envy about everything…except the length of the flight!

You can take your own entertainment on the Dreamliner DrF.

The large screen in the seat back in front of you also has a USB port.

The Menu has a USB option and you can charge those devices you've taken with you.

I also recommend Bluetooth headphones to keep all those singing babies away !

I have a selection of music to sleep to.
