Canada lifts ban on passenger flights from India; Here are all details you need to know

Sep 26, 2021, 12:38 PM IST

Canada has lifted a month-long ban on passenger flights from India on Sunday. The limitations were imposed in accordance with the Covid-19 guidelines. Before September 26, Canada has imposed restrictions on all direct commercial and private passenger flights from India. Since the prohibition has been lifted, passengers can now fly to Canada with preventive measures such as a negative test report from a certified laboratory. Air Canada, the largest airline in the North American country of Canada, has resumed operations after a four-month hiatus. Due to an increase in COVID-19 instances, the nation stopped aircraft services from India in April of this year.

The limitations on direct connection for flights to and from Delhi have now been lifted. Air Canada has started nonstop flights with new rules that require WHO-approved vaccinated passengers to undergo a fast PCR test at the Covid-19 Testing Centre and Lounge at Terminal 3, Indira Gandhi International Airport, no later than 18 hours before departure.
According to the airline, travellers flying from India to Toronto, Canada, must perform an RT-PCR test within 18 hours of boarding the trip.

Previously, Canada required Indian travellers to have a negative RT-PCR in a third nation before admission. This criterion is no longer in effect.  Air Canada verified to a Twitter user that it is restarting airline operations from Delhi. The airline reacted to questions regarding the reinstatement of direct flights between Toronto and Delhi.
