Air Canada will increase its flights between Heathrow and Vancouver to twice per day for summer 2018.
The Star Alliance member will also add new non-stop flights from Vancouver to both Paris Charles de Gaulle and Zurich from June 2018. All of these new flights will be operated by Air Canada’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
Benjamin Smith, president of passenger airlines at Air Canada, said: “We continue to strategically broaden our international network from our Vancouver hub with the addition of two new, non-stop international services to Europe in 2018 and additional flights to Heathrow.
“The operating economics of the Dreamliners together with the Vancouver Airport Authority's efforts to maintain airport operating costs among the lowest in Canada have enabled us to expand our network.”
Air Canada's Vancouver-Zurich service will start on June 7 and will operate three times per week until October 14. Vancouver-Paris CDG is scheduled to begin on June 8 with four weekly flights until October 15.
The new flights are due to go on sale on September 6.
