Air Canada adds Dreamliner to YOW-LHR route

MONTREAL — Starting next spring Air Canada will boost its nonstop flights from Ottawa to London-Heathrow to daily service with its Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Passengers travelling between Ottawa and London-Heathrow will have the option to fly in Air Canada’s Signature cabin, featuring fully lie-flat suites, as well as the added choice of a Premium Economy cabin.

Mark Galardo, Vice President, Network Planning at Air Canada, says passengers on the route will “love this aircraft whose revolutionary design improves the on-board air quality, which, combined with other features such as our next generation cabin, mood lighting and other amenities, mitigates jet lag.” Using the Dreamliner on the route means passengers also get the option of Air Canada’s Premium Economy cabin, he added.

The three-cabin 255-seat B787-8 will be dedicated year-round to the route beginning March 29, 2020. It will replace a two-cabin, 211-seat Boeing 767-300ER.

Air Canada has also announced it is suspending its summer seasonal Ottawa-Frankfurt service. The last flight on this route will be operated on October 24, 2019.

Air Canada says passengers travelling to Europe from Ottawa next summer will have an additional option to fly to Frankfurt on a new seasonal service provided by our Star Alliance partner Lufthansa, which will begin operating on May 16, 2020 and end Oct. 24, 2020.
