Air Canada has said it is ready to increase its frequencies on London Heathrow-Vancouver route from next summer. With its increased frequencies the airline is going to operate a twice daily service between the two destinations. The airline also said that it is going to launch new flights between Paris and Zurich in June 2018. This route will be served with the help of a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
Media reports said that Air Canada will be conducting nonstop flights services to five European destinations, including Paris and Zurich, from next summer. All these five destinations in Europe will be served from Vancouver. Earlier this year, Canada’s national carrier had launched new flights to several destinations from Vancouver. These destinations include Boston, Denver, Dallas/Fort Worth, London Gatwick, Nagoya, Frankfurt and Taipei.
According to the reports, Air Canada will be resuming its seasonal service to Delhi effective from October 14, 2018. The frequency on seasonal Vancouver-Delhi route will be increased up to 5 times per week. The airline also said that it will also start seasonal flights to Melbourne and Orlando as well from December onwards. The seasonal flights services to Melbourne will begin from December 1, while the flights to Orlando will start from December 20 this year.
Benjamin Smith, President of Passenger Airlines at Air Canada, said, “We are focusing on expanding our global flight network from our crucial Vancouver hub. This is of strategic importance to us. We have added two new nonstop long-haul flights to Europe in 2018 and additional frequencies to London Heathrow. Our primary aim is to offer excellent and convenient options for customers from British Columbia and the West Coast of United States to Europe. This will also offer European visitors and beyond a great opportunity to seamlessly connect to the Pacific Northwest and western Canada.”
