During the past week we have seen more inquiries for customers looking to fly in the peak fall and winter season to India. Those who have purchased tickets were able to secure cheap India flights. Air prices to India from Toronto and Vancouver are less than they have been in the past years on the European carriers including British Airways and Lufthansa! The fact that none of the Chinese carriers are going to India means their very cheap India fares are out of the picture, but because overall demand is very low the European carriers, Air Canada and Air India are fighting over the few passengers available.
One new issue when looking for cheap India flights is that some of the lowest fares are now non-refundable. In the past almost all India flights, including the cheapest options had the ability to refund with a penalty, some as low as $350 per ticket. Now, if you buy a non-refundable fare you could potentially be out of pocket over $1,000, but rest assured date changes are still available. What this means is that if you buy a cheap India flight and you cannot travel for any reason, you can cancel your booking and pay the change penalty to fly on a future travel date, this way you don’t lose the value or your original purchase.
This week if you are looking to purchase a one-way ticket from Toronto to India your two best options remain the Air Canada direct flight to Delhi, or the Air India direct flight to Delhi. Air Canada is available from $949, and Air India is available from $749.
If you are looking for a cheap flight from India to Toronto you can fly on the Air Canada direct flight from Delhi to Toronto from $1,299 or the Air India direct flight from $1,339. To find your cheapest round-trip flight from Toronto to India your best bet is to fly on Lufthansa via Frankfurt for only $1,090. Normally a ticket to India during this period on Lufthansa would cost at least $1,400, so now is a great time to take advantage of cheap flights to India!
For one-way cheap India flights from Vancouver to India your best option is to stick with either of the direct flights. For the Air Canada direct flight to Delhi from Vancouver you can find a ticket as cheap as $1,019 including all taxes or you can use the Air India direct from Vancouver to Delhi which is even lower at $789. If you want to purchase a return flight from Vancouver to India you should look at Lufthansa as they have prices as low as $1,089!
In addition to everything else that is happening, British Airways has also announced to new flights to Pakistan. These new flights to Lahore have great connections via London from Vancouver and Toronto and are proving very popular with the public. Fares for either city prices are as low as $1,199 and COVID case counts in Pakistan remain low. If you are looking to find cheap flights from Canada to Pakistan this is a great year to travel!
