With all of the issues that occurred in the fall for Canada to India travel, there was a severe drop in flight bookings. Now that visa restrictions have been lifted and diplomatic relations between Canada and India seem to have improved, we are seeing a big rush of bookings for this winter. The fact that some customers who wanted to travel from Canada to India in the fall were unable to, many are now travelling this winter, in addition, some travellers who were always planning to fly this winter held off on booking as they needed to ensure they would receive their visa for India. Finally, due to the lack of bookings this fall there are cheap India flights available! All of these items combined have had a strong impact on rising India bookings in the past 7 days.
In other flight news, Air India has changed its order with Airbus to give it more flexibility as the airline changes its structure to better compete on the worldwide stage. The changes will give Air India a smaller version of the Airbus A350 as Air India has decided that the smaller capacity and better fuel efficiency are more important than having only the biggest planes of the A350 variants. While this will most likely not have a huge impact on North America or Air India in general it proves that the new management is continuing to look closely at the India travel market and make adjustments as necessary. These prudent decisions are great news and they will mean better service and cheap India flights in the long term.
Also, a significant change that could help lower prices for Canada to India flights is the Canadian government has increased restrictions on student traffic. Students make up a huge part of the India-to-Canada travel market and now they will have to face new rules that will mean they need to have more money when coming to Canada which will probably stop some from coming at all. In addition, the government is tightening up the rules on the education facilities themselves to make sure they are providing a quality program which will also raise costs. While this may not be great news for students, it should mean cheap India flights next year!
