United Airlines and Air Canada will resume flights to India following the reopening of Pakistan’s airspace to foreign countries, the two announced separately.

Pakistan closed its airspace in February 2019.

United’s flights linking Newark to both Mumbai and Delhi will start on September 6, 2019 and its seasonal service between Delhi and San Francisco will resume on schedule on December 5. Air Canada’s Toronto-Delhi service will commence operations on October 1.

Air Canada will operate the Delhi flights with Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. United will use Boeing 777-300ERs on flights to Mumbai and 777-200ERs on Delhi flights.

In addition to the flights operated by North American carriers, Air India said it will restart its flights from Toronto to Delhi on September 27.
