With busy flights from so many countries prices for travel from Canada to India are remaining stubbornly high. Access to cheap India flights is proving very difficult as demand is rising from so many countries all over the world. As the latest spike in COVID cases drops off quickly and rules are relaxed everywhere, passengers are booking up flights at a faster pace than we have seen in years. In addition, to the increased number of bookings, India continues to operate using travel bubbles significantly reducing the number of commercial flights. There are once again rumours and leaks that the travel bubbles could be dropped as early as March 15th, which would be great news. If India does finally reduce this set of restrictions, it will allow airlines to operate flights as they see fit which means significant increases in the number of flights and capacity. Once the travel bubbles are removed it will allow new connection points and should create cheaper India airfares if enough flights are available to satisfy the massive demand to India from all countries including Canada.
We have been predicting here for quite some time that the relaxed restrictions would lead to cheap India fight options, but so far the demand has outstripped supply. If the travel bubbles are removed this could have an impact to finally lower prices on flights from Canada to India, but if the demand continues to rise at this pace, we may be facing higher prices for the foreseeable future. One way to secure a good ticket price to India is to book now for future flights. For example, we expect this fall, which is the normal peak season for India travel to be very busy and we are already seeing customers book early to commit to their India trip this year. Overall, it should be a busy year for travel between Canada & India and we expect that those who have the foresight to book early will lock their savings for a cheap India flight.
For customers who are looking to travel from Toronto to Delhi, we are starting to see more bookings away from the direct flight. While the Air Canda direct flight from Toronto to Delhi, followed by the Air India direct flight is still by far the most popular, many more customers are asking questions about other options and many customers are booking these flights. For those customers who only want the convenience of the direct Air Canada flight, prices this Spring start from $2385. For those who will consider taking a stop on their flight to India, there are massive savings to be had. If you were to book the Air Canada flight from Toronto connecting through Montreal to Delhi and then return on United Airlines via New York you can find a price as low as $1440. This is a great option to find your cheap flight to India from Toronto over the next few weeks.
For customers who are travelling from Vancouver to New Delhi, prices remain higher as we are lacking some of the options that are available from Toronto. To purchase a ticket to India on the Air Canada direct flight from Vancouver to Delhi in the next couple of weeks you will need to pay as much as $2660. Prices remain extremely high on this flight because the demand is so great. As with the flight from Toronto it is in your best interest to connect on the Air Canada direct flight via Montreal as there is much greater availability of seats. Purchasing a ticket on this flight and then connecting via Munich on Lufthansa for your return can save you almost $1000, with prices starting at $1665. By avoiding the direct service from Vancouver to Delhi, there are definite savings to found, helping you to find your cheap flight to India.
Overall flight bookings to India have soared in the past few weeks as the announcements on COVID restrictions have been made. As almost all of these changes have been positive for travel so more people are committing to booking a flight between Canada and India. If the Indian government announces the drop of the travel bubble, we expect a significant increase in airline capacity which could increase demand once again. If the airlines can add enough seats, we believe that you will be able to secure a cheap flight to India soon. There are still many changes coming over the next few weeks and months, but if the last few weeks have been any indication travel will become easier for your next trip to India.
