Air Canada has confirmed that its non-stop St. John's to London Heathrow, U. K. flights will operate year-round beginning 26 October 2014.

Flights will operate three times a week on Monday-Thursday-Saturday leaving St. John's at 00:40 to arrive in London at 09:15. Flights will depart from London at 11:05 and arrive back in St. John's at 13:05.

Air Canada will operate the route using newly refurbished 120-seat Airbus A319 aircraft in a two-cabin configuration offering a choice of Executive Class and Economy service.

The A319 jets feature Air Canada's personal entertainment system with 8.9-inch wide digital in-seat monitors and touch-screen controls offering hours of audio and video on demand programming at every seat. Other features include in-seat power within reach of every customer.

"Air Canada is pleased to offer the only year-round non-stop flights between St. John's and London Heathrow. On-going support for the seasonal service by the local community over the past several years now enables us to extend it and offer travellers in Newfoundland and Labrador the convenience of year-round flights to London Heathrow," said Benjamin Smith, Executive Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer at Air Canada. "Our customers in Newfoundland and Labrador value this direct link to the U.K., as the fastest and most efficient way of making connections to several European capitals such as Brussels, Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen, Vienna, Warsaw and Athens. Our year-round flight will also attract more visitors to Newfoundland and Labrador and support the local economy."

Starting 18 June 2014, all Air Canada flights will arrive and depart from Heathrow Airport's new Terminal 2, also known as The Queen's Terminal.

Susan Sullivan, Minister of Innovation, Business and Rural Development, said, "The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is pleased that Air Canada has made the decision to return to year-round, direct flights from St. John's to London and we are delighted to provide our support to ensure its success. This move further illustrates the strong business climate here in Newfoundland and Labrador and validates the increasing demand for continued international access. This flight will not only enhance our tourism market, but will strengthen our access to European markets and positions Newfoundland and Labrador as a destination of choice for business."
