Air Canada to Introduce Non-Stop Service Between Toronto and Seoul

Travel News Asia 7 January 2005

Air Canada is to introduce non-stop flights between Toronto and Seoul. The airline will a operate three times weekly non-stop service from Toronto beginning July 1, 2005, 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.

"New non-stop service to Seoul from our main Toronto hub brings eastern North America that much closer to Korea, and strengthens Air Canada's position as a carrier of choice between North America and Asia," said Ben Smith, Vice President, Planning. "Our growth in non-stop flights between Toronto and Asia complements our extensive choice of non-stop services from our main Asia gateway in Vancouver, and offers customers more flexibility and choice in their travel planning. Combined with our major expansion of services throughout Latin America, also via our Toronto hub, Air Canada offers international travellers between Asia and South America the added convenience of avoiding U.S. transit visa requirements."

Air Canada will operate the new route using 282-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 extensive 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.

With the addition of Toronto-Seoul non-stop service, Air Canada will offer customers up to 12 non-stop flights per day in each direction between Canada and eight destinations in Asia. From its main hub in Toronto, the carrier operates daily non-stop flights to Hong Kong, Tokyo and Delhi, the only non-stop link between North America and India. From its Pacific Asian gateway in Vancouver, Air Canada serves Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Seoul with daily non-stop flights, as well as Taipei on a codeshare basis.
