Air Canada to operate B787-9 on Toronto-London Heathrow route

Air Canada has announced it will deploy a Boeing 787-9 aircraft to operate flights to Toronto from London from 2016. The flights on the route will start operating from June 1 through October 29.

Canada’s national carrier had earlier planned to operate four-time daily flights services between the two cities next summer using its three Boeing 777-300ERs and one Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. The airline has however said that these aircrafts will now be replaced with Boeing 787-9 aircraft on the route.

The flights, which will be operated with the help of Boeing 787-9 aircraft, include AC868 and AC859. Flight AC868 will make its departure from Toronto Pearson International Airport at 09:05 hours and arrive in London Heathrow Airport at 21:00 hours. However, Flight AC859 will take off from London at 18:00 hours and arrive in Toronto at 20:40 hours.

A spokesperson of Air Canada said that this winter the airline will be operating four-time daily flights services with the help of its Bowing 787-8, Airbus A330-300, Boeing 777-300ER and Boeing 767-300ER aircrafts.

Meanwhile, the airline has announced that it will launch a second daily flights service between London Heathrow and Vancouver beginning next summer. The airline will deploy a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft for its additional second service starting from June 1 through September 29.

The outbound Flight AC896 will make its departure from Vancouver at 21:10 hours and arrive in London Heathrow at 14:20 hours next day. The return Flight AC897 will depart from London Heathrow at 16:15 hours and arrive in Vancouver at 17:45 hours.

The airline also said that the current daily flights services AC854 and AC855 would be operated utilizing a 450-seat Boeing 777 aircraft.
