VANCOUVER — Starting next summer, Canadians will have easier access to the Land Downunder, thanks to increased service from Air Canada.
The airline recently announced plans to increase its new non-stop flights from Vancouver to Brisbane, Australia to daily from three times weekly beginning June 17, 2016.
Citing “very positive” customer response to the announcement of the only non-stop flights between Canada and Brisbane as the reason for the boost, Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada noted that the expanded service will “position Vancouver to be the preferred gateway hub for trans-Pacific travel to and from North America.”
The new flights will be on a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft featuring 20 International Business Class lie-flat seat suites, 21 Premium Economy and 210 Economy Class seats with upgraded in-flight entertainment.
Next summer, Air Canada will also launch new international services from Montreal-Casablanca, Montreal-Lyon, Toronto-Prague, Toronto-Budapest, Toronto-Glasgow, Toronto-London Gatwick, Toronto-Warsaw, Toronto-Seoul, Vancouver-Brisbane, and Vancouver-Dublin.
