Air Canada is to launch daily flights between Toronto-Pearson and Tokyo-Haneda (Tokyo International Airport) on 1 July 2014 using Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft.

This is the first deployment of Air Canada's Dreamliner - featuring the airline's new seating and cabin amenities - in the Asian market.

The new route will complement Air Canada's existing flights to Tokyo Narita International Airport from Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.

"Air Canada is very pleased to offer customers, especially business travelers to Japan, the option of flying to Tokyo-Haneda airport aboard our new 787 Dreamliner. Located less than 30 minutes by monorail from Tokyo's central business district, Tokyo-Haneda is Japan's busiest airport and is popular with travelers going into the city. Moreover, with North America's only daytime flight to Tokyo-Haneda, the schedule is convenient for those who want to maximize productivity during their trip. It will also further strengthen our Toronto global hub, whose easy connection processes and shorter elapsed flying times make it ideal for travelers to and from the U.S. north-east," said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Air Canada. "To provide customers choice, Air Canada will continue to offer service from Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver to Narita airport. Both Japanese airports offer a wealth of onward domestic and international connections through ANA and our other Star Alliance partners."

Air Canada will begin taking delivery of 37 Boeing 787 Dreamliners in spring 2014.

The aircraft features a brand new contemporary dcor and three cabins of service, International Business with 180-degree lie-flat pod seating, Premium Economy and Economy.

It also offers an extensive choice of inflight entertainment on enhanced-definition, seat-back touch screens along with power outlets and USB ports available for all customers.
