Air Canada Vacations (ACV) has announced the launch of its new India Tours package program.

According to the tour operator, this program offers Canadians even more vacation options to choose from with year-round tours including immersive experiences across diverse landscapes, architectural wonders, and the rich cultural heritage of India.

ACV shared that travellers can enjoy easy access to India with connecting flights available from over 60 Canadian airports, thanks to Air Canada’s network. 

“With the launch of our India Tours program, we're opening doors to new possibilities,” said Nino Montagnese, vice president of ACV. “This is not just about travel; it is about embarking on a journey of discovery. We invite travellers to join us as we immerse ourselves into the heart of India's vibrant culture and stunning landscapes, promising experiences that will leave an indelible mark on our hearts and minds.” Montagnese added.

Montagnese added that with "more tour destinations offered than ever before, Air Canada Vacations will continue to broaden horizons by adding leisure products everywhere that Air Canada operates."

The India tours program offers eight year-round packages with private transportation in key destinations such as Delhi, Jaipur, Mumbai, Agra, Goa, Ladakh, and Nepal

Featuring a variety of hand-picked durations and activities, Air Canada Vacations shared that its fully-guided tours in India are tailored to most travel styles, and include breakfasts and dinners, along with 4 to 5-star accommodations located in key areas, with the exception of the Ladakh region where properties in Leh, Stok, and Nubra offer comfortable accommodations whose star ratings may differ slightly as compared to those elsewhere. 

Tour packages also include domestic flights with train tickets between cities (where applicable).
