Air Canada enhances international routes from Vancouver

Air Canada has made enhancements to four international routes from Vancouver including increasing service to Delhi with daily flights on a year-round basis starting 2 June, 2019.

In addition, Air Canada is increasing its non-stop Melbourne service to four times weekly year-round, and summer seasonal service to Zurich will increase to five flights a week. YVR-Osaka (Kansai) flights will be five times weekly from June to October next summer.

All flights will be operated with Air Canada’s flagship Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Air Canada vice president of network planning, Mark Galardo said: “We are pleased to increase our capacity to these important markets as we continue to strategically broaden our international network from our Vancouver hub. Customers have responded positively to our increasing service to Delhi and this flight will now operate daily on a year-round basis to meet demand.

“The addition of a fourth weekly flight to Melbourne, Australia’s second largest city, year-round will provide further convenience to business and leisure travellers between North America and Australia, offering seamless connections thanks to the in-transit preclearance facilities at YVR.

“With Dreamliner service to Osaka and increased frequencies to Zurich, we are further strengthening our convenient network to European and Asian markets from YVR, reflecting demand between Canada and these destinations in the busy summer travel season,”

Vancouver Airport Authority president and chief executive officer, Craig Richmond said it is fantastic to see Air Canada continuing to build out its hub and global network from YVR via the launch of five international destinations and four new US destinations at YVR since the start of 2017.
