“As of September 27, 2021, direct flights from India to Canada will resume,” said the government on Sunday.
Earlier on Tuesday, Canada extended the restriction on all direct commercial and private passenger flights from India until September 26.
However, with the ban now expiring, passengers from India can now travel to Canada with a few precautionary measures, which include having a negative Covid-19 test report from an approved laboratory.
“Indian passengers must have proof of a negative Covid-19 test from the approved laboratory at the Delhi airport. The report should be taken not more than 18 hours before departure,” the statement said.
Air Canada is expected to resume its flights from India on September 27, while Air India will be resuming its flights to Canada from September 30.
