The flight times for the new Dublin-Vancouver route have been timed to optimise connectivity to and from the Air Canada rouge’s west coast network at its Vancouver Airport hub.

Vancouver is Dublin Airport’s fifth destination in Canada, as the airport already offers services to Toronto, St John’s in Newfoundland, Montreal, and Halifax in Nova Scotia.
