Air Canada has temporarily suspended service of India, following a choice by the Pakistani government to close its airspace, a spokeswoman for the carrier said on Wednesday.
Canada’s biggest carrier canceled one flight to India from Vancouver and another flight in transit to Delhi has turned back to Toronto, spokeswoman Isabelle Arthur said by email. The carrier, which works daily service from Toronto and Vancouver to Delhi and four times weekly between Toronto and Mumbai, will “monitor the situation.
Pakistan shot down two Indian warrior flies on Wednesday, multi-day after Indian warplanes struck inside Pakistan for the first time since a war in 1971, prompting leading powers to urge the nuclear-armed rivals to show restraint.
Change fees will be waived for the affected flights.
The news comes after Pakistan detailed that it had shot down two Indian jets, just as brought an Indian pilot into Pakistani custody.
The Government of Canada also advises that travelers, “Exercise a high level of alert in India because of a proceeding with the risk of terrorist attacks throughout the country at all times.”
Preceding leaving for the airport, guarantee that you check your Flight Status, or call Air Canada’s automated flight data system at 1-888-422-7533.
Air Canada adds that it proceeds to closely monitor the situation and will work to get its travelers on board safely and as quickly as possible.
