Air Canada marks launch of its B787 Dreamliner to Tokyo-Haneda

TORONTO — One of Air Canada’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliners is now operating flight AC005 from Toronto to Tokyo-Haneda.

“Feedback from customers who have flown on our Dreamliners has been extremely positive particularly with respect to the comfort and spaciousness in all three cabins, our newest enhanced definition seat back touch screen in-flight entertainment, the quieter, smoother ride and the technological advancements providing a more refreshing feel at the end of the journey,” said Benjamin Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. “We look forward to deploying the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on our Toronto to Tel Aviv route later this summer, and on our Vancouver to Tokyo-Narita and Shanghai routes this coming winter.”

As Air Canada takes delivery of new widebody aircraft for its mainline fleet, current B767 and Airbus A319 aircraft will be transferred to Air Canada rouge.
