Do not wait until it’s too late if you are buying a ticket to India. We are now seeing great numbers of people on a week-to-week basis buying tickets from Canada to India for the fall and winter. The booking season has come early for those who have a solid plan to purchase a ticket to India and lock in a cheap India flight.
Over the past week, we have seen prices start to rise for fall flights. While the amount of the increase is relatively small that does show that airlines are at least happy with the amount of business they are getting at these prices and trying to see how the market responds to slight increases. The increases represent the confidence of the market that this will be another season with relatively high prices for both the Vancouver to Delhi and Toronto to Delhi markets.
With capacity constraints continuing for the foreseeable future, we are more likely to see prices rise even further unless we see a large drop in fuel prices or the recommitment of Chinese capacity to India and Canada. With Asian demand still strong as those families return to see their relatives, they are purchasing most of the seats at a higher rate, making it difficult for Canadians flying through Asia to get to India. The largest benefactor of this reduced capacity is Air India, but also the European carriers and Air Canada stand to benefit from these higher prices.
To top this off, we continue to see a massive demand for travel departing India. With large numbers of Indian students wanting to travel abroad for their studies, it has created an imbalance of air traffic impacting your ability to purchase a cheap round-trip ticket to India. Due to the imbalance, it is possible to get a cheap India flight one-way, we expect this situation to continue for the short term and potentially even longer.
With all the challenges impacting the market, the best way to get a cheap ticket to India is to book as early as possible because students have no choice but to travel when their studies start so they will always be looking to start their research for travel much earlier than a leisure customer. With the competition for seats, booking as early as possible will be the new norm for Canada-to-India travel as return trips from India to Canada will continue to have significant numbers of student traffic well into the future.
For passengers leaving from Toronto to Delhi this fall most are purchasing the Air India direct flight as it is the cheapest in the market and the shortest flying time. Tickets are available on Air India for $1860 during September. Customers who avoid Air India due to potential service issues are looking closely at Delta Airlines over the past week with prices starting from $1970. For those customers who like the convenience of Air Canada now is actually a great time to buy a ticket on their direct flight from Toronto to India with cheap India flights from $2112.
Passengers looking for a great deal departing from Vancouver this fall are not able to find a cheap flight to India right now.
Air India continues to take most of the business despite raising fares in the past few days. This fall Air India prices are available from $2500 and customers are still purchasing them. Customers looking for a deal can opt to travel from Seattle or consider the option from ANA Airlines, but they have a significant layover in Tokyo.
Vancouver customers are still hoping that something changes so they can buy a cheap flight to India.
Overall, we are starting to see prices rise for the fall and winter travel seasons as more people switch strategies and are booking early to get a cheap India flight rather than wait and hope for a seat sale.
In the past year, those who waited ended up paying significantly more or ended up cancelling their flight to India.
The best course of action is to book early and save to get a cheap flight to India.
