AIR CANADA has launched a new daily flight to India after a four year break. The airline, currently in Chapter 11, has started a Toronto ” Delhi service, the only non-stop flight available between North America and India. The 15 hour Airbus A340 flight features Indian movies, Indian food and flight attendants who speak Punjabi and Hindi. Some 40% of customers are expected to originate from the US. Currently passengers to and from India connect through a European hub (typically Heathrow), the direct flight saving at least three hours.
