Anantdeep Singh Dhillon, convenor of the North America for Fly Amritsar Initiative, and Harjap Singh Aujla, president of the Amritsar Vikas Manch, believe that Neos Airline’s one-stop flight between Amritsar and Toronto via Milan will help the city and region’s economic development.

It will not only benefit people, but it will also provide new opportunities for farmers to export their products directly from Amritsar rather than through Delhi, they said.

The launch of Neos Airline’s one-stop flight from Amritsar to Toronto has piqued the interest of local NGOs and Canada’s large Punjabi diaspora.

Previously, flying to Toronto from Punjab was time-consuming due to multiple stops. According to reports, nearly 1 million Punjabis live in Canada, accounting for nearly 3% of the population. As a result, the introduction of a nonstop flight from Amritsar to Toronto is a significant step forward.
