Conservative members of parliament have called on airlines to offer direct flights between Canada and the Punjabi heartland

Conservative lawmakers is to reduce needless bureaucracy while empowering people




Together with Conservative Vice Chairman Tim Uppal (Assembly for Edmonton Mill Woods, Alberta), Conservative Finance Critic Jasraj Singh Hallan (MP for Calgary Forest Lawn, Alberta), and Conservative Transport Critic Mark Strahl (MP for Chilliwack-Hope, BC), Vis, an assemblyman for Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon in British Columbia, is urging airlines to start direct flights between Canada and Amritsar, India.

The Canada-India Air Transport Agreement was renegotiated last week by the governments of Canada and India, giving airlines greater rights and eliminating the former cap of 35 flights per week on unlimited intra-national flights.

Our goal as Conservative lawmakers is to reduce needless bureaucracy while empowering people. According to Vis, the government is paving the way for the launch as a result of the more than 14,000 Canadians who have signed his petition to establish direct flights between Canada and Amritsar.

India is the fourth-largest foreign airport market for Canada. The new deal opens up Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai to Canadian airlines.
