Air Canada to Increase Flights Between Vancouver and Brisbane, Australia

Air Canada has unveiled plans to increase its new non-stop flights from Vancouver to Brisbane, Australia to daily from three times weekly beginning 17 June 2016.

Air Canada operates the route with Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft featuring 20 International Business Class lie-flat seat suites, 21 Premium Economy and 210 Economy Class seats.

Flights are timed to optimize connectivity to and from Air Canada's extensive North American network through the airline's Vancouver hub, while also offering in Brisbane, excellent connectivity across Australia.

"Customer response to our announcement of the only non-stop flights between Canada and Brisbane has been very positive, and we thank federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau for the revised bilateral agreement which enables us to increase our presence in this important Asia Pacific market. As a result, Air Canada will boost its new Vancouver-Brisbane service to daily flights," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. "This expanded service also underscores Vancouver International Airport's importance and attractiveness. The seamless connections made possible for visitors by its in-transit pre-clearance facilities, combined with our extensive domestic and U.S. network radiating from Vancouver, position Vancouver to be the preferred gateway hub for trans-Pacific travel to and from North America."
