Air Canada will increase flights from London Heathrow to Vancouver next summer to double daily, adding a Boeing Dreamliner to the route.
“Air Canada is strategically increasing its international flights at YVR with a second daily flight to London Heathrow next summer in response to seasonal travel demand,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines.
“Our second London flight beginning 1st June 2016 will be operated with new state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft and both London flights will feature our newly designed International Business Class product, and offer customers a choice of three cabins of service and industry-leading amenities.
“We are the only airline to fly double daily to London next summer from YVR. With this, along with our new non-stop, year-round flights to Brisbane, Australia, now beginning on 1st June, plus increased capacity on flights from YVR to Sydney, Australia, with Boeing 777 aircraft that will be newly converted, featuring our new international product standard offering a choice of three cabins of service, Air Canada is reinforcing YVR as an important hub, connecting our B.C., Western Canada and US routes with our South Pacific, Asian and European network.”
