0 have signed. Let’s get to 25,000!

It is the petition to the Government of Canada, British Government and the Indian Government to Start the Non-Stop direct flights between Toronto-Amritsar, Vancouver-Amritsar and London Heathrow-Amritsar.

In 2019, World Over Communities are Celebrating the 550th Parkash Purab (Gurpurab) of 1st Sikh Guru Nanak Dev ji, it will be celebrated in the big way across the Globe. Recently, Government of India & Pakistan announced to open and develop the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor for Sikh Pilgrims from where they can go to the Gurudwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur without Visa/Passport formalities. People from across the Globe will come to visit & pay obeisance at the Historical Gurdwara’s in Amritsar, Dera Baba Nanak, Sultanpur Lodhi, Kartarpur Sahib (Pakistan). Amritsar is the closest Destination to all these points. But there are no direct flights from Toronto, Vancouver, London Heathrow to Amritsar. There is big presence of over 1.2 Million Punjabi's in Canada alone and the Punjabi Diaspora is demanding nonstop flights to Amritsar from many years. Similarly, there is big presence of Punjabi's in London Metropolitan Region & in other parts of United Kingdom, Europe who are asking for non-stop flights to Amritsar from the last many decades. Punjabi's are facing great inconvenience in travelling because of non-availability of direct flights to the International Airport in Amritsar. Amritsar is hardly 1-3 hours from all Districts of Punjab, Himachal Pradesh & Southern J&K Districts. while travel time form Delhi is over 5-8 hours. Direct flights from Toronto, Vancouver, London Heathrow to Amritsar will be the great relief for over 4.5 Million Punjabi's settled in Canada/USA/Europe/United Kingdom.

Amritsar is a Preferred Destination for the Punjabi Diaspora and Foreign Tourists who come here to pay obeisance at the Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple) and other Historical, Religious Places in the region. It hosts more than 35 million pilgrims annually. More than 6 million Punjabis settled in North America, Europe, Australia, South East Asia and Middle East Countries.

Over 4.5 Million Punjabi's settled in North America, Europe & United Kingdom only. It is a long-standing pending demand of Punjabi Community to have non-stop flights between Toronto - Amritsar, Vancouver - Amritsar, London Heathrow - Amritsar. Earlier, Air India used to operate the Amritsar - London Heathrow - Toronto flight which was the most successful flight in the history of the India's National Carrier But Air India ceased operations of ATQ-LHR-YYZ flight in October 2010 due to unspecified reasons.

Presently, due to the unavailability of Toronto - Amritsar, Vancouver - Amritsar, London Heathrow - Amritsar Non-Stop flights, Punjabi's are facing Inconvenience while travelling to their roots in Punjab region. Amritsar is the International Tourist Destination, focal point for Sikhism, one of the most visited cities of the world. Sikhs as well as Punjabi's have deep love and faith in Sri Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple) Amritsar. The flights will increase connectivity and will be huge fillip for Trade and Commerce by crating more options for the export of commodities, fresh vegetables and other assortments that are always in high demand in Canada and United Kingdom.

Through this petition, we humbly request to the Honorable Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Hon’ble British Prime Minister Theresa May, Hon'ble Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to guide and take personal interest starting these direct non-stop flights between Toronto - Amritsar, Vancouver - Amritsar, London Heathrow - Amritsar. These are the most demanding, profitable and lucrative routes. It will be great convenience to the Punjabi Community of United Kingdom/Canada if the non-stop flights starts from Toronto, Vancouver, London Heathrow to Amritsar.
