Air Canada to Increase Ottawa - Heathrow Capacity; Suspend Frankfurt Service

Air Canada has confirmed plans to increase capacity between Ottawa and London Heathrow.

The airline will commence dedicated year-round daily flights from 29 March 2020 using 255-seat Boeing 787-8 (pictured) featuring Air Canada's Signature cabin, Premium Economy and Economy class cabins.

Air Canada currently operates the route with 211-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with two cabins of service.

"Air Canada is pleased to offer customers travelling between Ottawa and London-Heathrow the added comfort of service aboard our flagship Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Customers love this aircraft whose revolutionary design improves the on-board air quality, which, combined with other features such as our next generation cabin, mood lighting and other amenities, mitigates jet lag. As a result, customers arrive better rested to hit the ground running for either business or pleasure. With the Dreamliner, we are also now offering customers flying between Ottawa and London the additional option of Air Canada's Premium Economy cabin," said Mark Galardo, Vice President, Network Planning at Air Canada.

Air Canada has also announced that it is suspending its summer seasonal, Ottawa-Frankfurt service. The last flight on this route will be operated on 24 October 2019.

Customers travelling to Europe from Ottawa next summer will have an additional option to fly to Frankfurt on a new seasonal service provided by Air Canada's Star Alliance partner Lufthansa, which will begin operating on 16 May 2020 and end 24 October 2020.
