With the federal election being called in the past few weeks, we will likely have to wait until it has been completed for the flight ban to be removed. While everyone is looking forward to that day, there are still many India flights being booked for the fall and winter as there as too many people that are missing friends and family.
With the ban in place, it gives a great opportunity to find cheap India flights that would normally not be available. In addition, the overall relaxing of rules is giving confidence to airlines to restart service. British Airways has just announced an increase in their schedule for September from Vancouver which means those extra seats need to fill!
One of the ways that British Airways will be using to fill their flights is cheap tickets to India. Of course, the Air Canada direct flight to India is always the most popular option, as there is a definite expectation of the flight ban being removed once the election is over.
In other news India flight news, Canadian citizens who are fully vaccinated can now travel on Lufthansa via Frankfurt. Most, if not all Canadians will be fully vaccinated the next time they fly so if they choose this option via Germany, they can get their negative COVID test in Frankfurt on their return from India. This means you do not have to take a long expensive route via a 3rd country like Mexico to get back to Canada.
This route will option will make a huge difference to Canadians even if the flight ban remains on the books. Finally, the Lufthansa option via Frankfurt is available at a very low price, making it a great option for an India flight this fall or winter.
