Canada’s Minister of Transportation Omar Alghabra announced Canada-India Air Transport Agreement to allow unlimited flights between both countries

The Honorable Omar Alghabra, Canada’s Minister of Transportation, announced the decision on the expansion of the air transport agreement between Canada and India.

The enlarged agreement permits specific airlines to run an unrestricted number of flights between the two nations to better respond to the air transported market between Canada-India. Under the previous document each nation was only allowed 35 flights per week.

Canadians depend on the aviation sector for a variety of international flight services. By extending Canada’s current air transportation partnerships, airlines will be able to provide more travel options and routes, which will benefit customers and businesses by expanding choice and convenience.

Airlines can immediately make use of the new rights granted by the extended agreement. In the future, officials from the two nations will continue to communicate to talk about expanding the agreement.
