Flights to Delhi will resume tonight from both Toronto (AC 42 February 28) and Vancouver (AC 44 March 1, it leaves shortly after midnight local time).

There are no flights to Mumbai scheduled for February 28.

"Our flexible re-booking policy for customers remains in place. Information will be updated on the official Air Canada website as it becomes available. We are working to move all customers from yesterday," Canada's flag carrier said in a statement.
