Air Canada has recently announced to increase the number of flights from thrice in a week to five times in a week on the Calgary-Tokyo route. The two new additional flights will join the currently three operational flights from 26th March 2011.

The flight AC 009 will depart from Calgary at 12.45 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and will arrive in Tokyo at 02.25 p.m. Flight AC 010 will depart Calgary at 04.00a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and will arrive in Tokyo at 10.40 a.m.

According to Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, "Demand for Air Canada's non-stop Calgary-Tokyo Narita service has been strong from business and leisure travelers, as well as freight forwarders.  We are very pleased after just one season operating the only scheduled direct service between Alberta and Asia to be able to increase flights on this route."

He also added, "Service to Narita offers a multitude of connecting flights with our Star Alliance partners to key destinations throughout Asia including Hong Kong, Manila, Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Bangkok, Taipei and several points across Japan.  This is a good example of how we can work well with the business and tourism communities to achieve success in some markets.  With the support of the Calgary business community, the Calgary Airport Authority, Travel Alberta and our travel partners, we look forward to being able to maintain a year-round schedule, pending approvals in Japan."

The flight service on Calgary-Tokyo route compliments the daily year-round Vancouver-Tokyo and Toronto-Tokyo non-stop flights operated with Boeing 777-300ER carrier. The airline will be offering 319 flights each week from Canada to Tokyo. The flights which will serve the Calgary-Tokyo route will be fully equipped with 211-seat Boeing 767-300 ER carrier with a choice of economy class and executive first class.
