Air Canada adds Toronto-Seoul nonstop flights next year

TORONTO — Air Canada will introduce nonstop flights between Toronto and Seoul, South Korea as part of its ongoing expansion of international services.

The new year-round nonstop flights between Toronto’s Pearson International Airport and Seoul’s Incheon International Airport will begin June 17, 2016 with daily service. To promote the new route, Air Canada is offering a special introductory fare starting as low as $1,399, roundtrip all-in, until Nov. 8, 2015 for travel June 17-23 and September 1-30, 2016. Tickets are now available for purchase.

“The introduction of nonstop flights between our main Toronto hub and Seoul further strengthens Air Canada’s presence in the growing Asian market,’ said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. “This new route will provide some of the fastest travel times for customers travelling to and from South Korea and Eastern Canada, the U.S. Northeast and South America via our main hub in Toronto. Together with our Vancouver-Seoul service, Air Canada will operate the most flights of any airline between Canada and South Korea with up to 14 flights per week.

“Our Toronto-Seoul nonstop flights will be operated with Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft featuring our newly designed international product offering customers a choice of three cabins of service and industry-leading amenities. As we renew and grow our international fleet to include 21 Boeing 787 aircraft by 2016 of the 37 on order, we are ramping up conversion of existing routes to Dreamliner service from Toronto to Asia, Europe and South America in order to provide our customers with the comfort and benefits of the most technologically advanced commercial aircraft flying today,” said Smith.
