Air Canada has announced plans to increase its Heathrow-Vancouver service to twice daily from next summer.

New services to Paris and Zurich are also due to commence in June, operated by the Dreamliner. Bookings can be made from September 6 on the airline’s website.

President of passenger airlines at Air Canada, Benjamin Smith, 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 London Heathrow.

With the launch of flights to Paris and Zurich, Air Canada will fly non-stop from Vancouver to five European destinations next summer, offering excellent options for travellers from BC and the North American west coast to Europe, and as well as for European visitors and beyond to western Canada and the Pacific Northwest.”

This year, Air Canada has launched new services from the airline’s Vancouver hub to Taipei, Frankfurt, Nagoya, Gatwick, Dallas-Fort Worth, Denver and Boston.

A seasonal Delhi service is set to resume on October 14, increasing up to five times weekly for the 2017/2018 season. Seasonal flights to Melbourne will start from December 1, and Orlando beginning December 20.
