Boeing has been working closely with Air India to restore 777-300ER that had been grounded due to COVID-19 pandemic

Air India today announced the increase in frequencies between Delhi and Vancouver, Canada, from 3x weekly to daily service with effect from August 31. 

This enhancement in frequency caters to growing traffic between India and Canada and has been enabled by the return to service of the widebody Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with three class configuration of first, business and economy.   

Manufacturer Boeing has been working closely with Air India following its acquisition by Tata Group to restore aircraft that had been grounded for prolonged periods due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other reasons. The progressive restoration of these aircraft has already allowed Air India to increase schedule resilience and will allow further frequency and network increases over the coming months.

“This increase in our frequency between Delhi and Vancouver is very welcome for many reasons. It is another sign of recovery from the pandemic and caters to strong customer demand. More importantly, it marks the first step in restoring Air India’s fleet and international network,” said Mr. Campbell Wilson, MD and CEO, Air India.

“We are pleased to mark this significant milestone, and the team at Air India is hard at work to enable more expansion in the near future,” he added.
