Travel News Asia Wednesday, 1 November 2006

Air Canada has launched non-stop, scheduled transatlantic flights from Alberta's capital city in Canada to London Heathrow.

International travel from Edmonton and Northern Alberta just became easier and more convenient, said Daniel Shurz, Vice President, Network Planning. Air Canada now connects Edmonton directly to London Heathrow, offering Northern Alberta customers the fastest and most convenient way of travelling to London and making global connections beyond. Frequent flyers to the UK can also purchase Air Canada's Edmonton-London Heathrow flights via the carrier's revolutionary multi-trip London Pass, offering price predictability for an entire year, the convenience of online travel management, and maximum travel flexibility.

Air Canada's Edmonton-London Heathrow flights now operate three times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, increasing to daily service starting April 1, 2007. Air Canada flight AC898 departs Edmonton at 18:35 (20:25 departure time on Tuesdays), arriving Heathrow at 10:10; flight AC 899 leaves Heathrow at 12:35, arriving Edmonton at 14:45.

All flights are operated with the 211-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft offering a choice of Executive First and Economy service.

Air Canada's Boeing 767-300ER fleet is being refurbished to feature the carrier's new personal entertainment system with 8.9 inch wide digital in-seat monitors and touch-screen controls offering audio and video on demand programming at every seat. Other features will include Air Canada's new lie-flat beds in Executive First, as well as new Economy seating and cabin design with in-seat power within reach of every customer.
