Air Canada launches Non-Stop Toronto-Seoul Service

Travel News Asia 1 July 2005

Air Canada today launched its first-ever non-stop service between eastern Canada and Korea. Air Canada will operate a three times weekly non-stop service from Toronto complementing its daily non-stop flights from Vancouver to Seoul. With an elapsed time of 14 hours 15 minutes westbound and 12 hours 55 minutes eastbound, the non-stop flight will save travellers 3 hours 20 minutes compared to the Vancouver routing.

"With the inaugural today of Air Canada's non-stop service between Toronto and Seoul we continue to grow our international network linking Asia with Canada and the rest of the world, said Marc Rosenberg, Vice President, Sales Product Distribution. "Our growth in non-stop service between Toronto and Asia complements our extensive schedule of non-stop services from our main Asia gateway in Vancouver, and offers customers more flexibility and choice in their travel planning with convenient connections to points throughout Air Canada's global network."

Air Canada will operate the new route using 286-seat A340-300 aircraft.

With a 09:45 departure from Toronto on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, arriving in Seoul at 13:00 the next day, flight AC065 is timed to offer convenient morning connections to and from points throughout Air Canada's North American network, particularly in eastern Canada and the United States. The eastbound flight, AC066, leaves Seoul at 14:40 on Monday, Thursday and Saturday and arrives in Toronto at 14:35 the same day, providing maximum connecting options.
