The Italian airline Neos Air will begin flights connecting Amritsar with Toronto in Canada and New York in the United States via its hub at Milan Malpensa Airport on April 6, 2023, giving the Punjabi diaspora in North America a cause for celebration. The announcement of this new one-stop seamless connectivity between Toronto and Amritsar via Milan, which will also connect Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport, Amritsar with New York, was shared by Sameep Singh Gumtala, Global Convener of the FlyAmritsar Initiative, an advocacy group pushing for direct flights to Amritsar.
According to Gumtala, scheduled service between Milan Malpensa and Amritsar began by Neos Air in the middle of December 2022. In September 2021, the airline launched charter services between Italy and Amritsar, marking the beginning of operations to Amritsar during the epidemic. Due to Spicejet’s operating of charter flights from Amritsar to Milan Bergamo and Rome during Covid periods, the Indian airline was granted permission to begin regular flights to both Italian airports in November of last year. Amritsar is the only airport in India that is currently connected with three airports in Italy thanks to direct flights offered by both Indian and Italian airlines.
