Understand the impact of the Ukraine conflict from a cross-sector perspective with the Global Data Executive Briefing: Ukraine Conflict

Air Canada is set to halt flights between Vancouver, Canada, and Delhi, India, between 2 June and early September in light of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

“The route is operationally constrained because of extended flying times and a re-fuelling stop that is required due to the current flight paths taken to go around Russian and Ukraine airspace,” stated the flag carrier.

Flights on the route during this time would also be adversely impacted by summer wind and weather conditions in South Asia.

Passengers will be re-scheduled on alternate flights without extra charges if they opt to travel on an Air Canada flight from Vancouver to Delhi between 2 June and 6 September.

The Canadian airline will continue to run up to 11 weekly flights between the countries from its gateways in Toronto and Montreal during this period.

Last November, Air Canada teamed up with Carbon Engineering (CE) to study the potential of the latter’s Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology in decarbonising the aviation sector.

The companies aim to focus on the detection of potential collaboration activities in sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), permanent CO₂ removal and innovation.
