Air Canada is boosting its services to Tokyo by adding a new daily, non-stop flight between Vancouver and Haneda Airport. The new route is scheduled to begin 29 January 2011 and will complement existing daily flights to Narita International airport.

The airline's new flights to Haneda will be operated onboard 211-seat Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft offering a choice of Executive First and Economy service, with the carrier's individual inflight entertainment system available at every seat throughout the aircraft.

"With Canada's only service to Haneda Airport, Air Canada is offering travellers to Japan the best of both worlds and twice as many flights to get there from Vancouver. Customers will be able to choose between flying non-stop to Haneda, which is only 30 minutes from downtown Tokyo, or they can continue to fly non-stop to Narita International Airport for onward domestic or international connections on our Star Alliance partners," said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. "We are confident our newest international flight will meet the growing demand for travel in the strong Pacific market, which saw Air Canada introduce a non-stop Calgary-Narita flight this year. Air Canada continues to focus on its global route expansion and we have added eight new international routes and destinations in 2010. With its lie-flat Executive First suites, Maple Leaf Lounges, concierge service, personal audio-visual systems at every seat, Aeroplan reward miles and much more, Air Canada is increasingly the preferred choice of international travellers."

The Haneda flights are timed to offer convenient connections to and from Bangkok and Singapore, and connections in Vancouver to and from various points across Western Canada and US west coast served by Air Canada.

With these new flights to Haneda, Air Canada will offer up to 24 weekly, non-stop flights from Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto to Narita or Haneda.

"Expanding air services between Vancouver and Asia is good news for the people and businesses of British Columbia," said Larry Berg, President and Chief Executive Officer, Vancouver Airport Authority. "Air Canada's new Vancouver - Tokyo Haneda service will not only strengthen trade and tourism ties between these two regions, but also continue to develop YVR as a key Asia-Pacific gateway. Every new wide-body daily international service to YVR generates over 100 person-years of employment, over $5 million in wages, and over $8 million to British Colombia's Gross Domestic Product annually."
