Air Canada improves Hong Kong schedule to Twice Daily Flights

Travel News Asia 21 July 2003

Effective December 1, 2003 Air Canada is to introduce daily non-stop flights from Hong Kong eastbound to Toronto and a convenient, same plane westbound flight via Vancouver.

With the new daily non-stop flights to Toronto complementing its daily Vancouver flights, Air Canada will offer customers the choice and flexibility of two daily flights linking both western and eastern Canada with one of Asia's most important business centres.

"Business travellers in particular will appreciate the convenience of daily non-stop flights from Hong Kong to Toronto in addition to the choice of travelling via either of our two main hubs which offer easy access to connecting flights throughout all of North America," said Montie Brewer, Executive Vice President, Commercial. "With the gradual return of travel  demand between North America and Asia's business centres, this improved schedule of twice daily flights to Hong Kong further reinforces Air Canada's presence in one of Asia's most important travel markets to bring customers added choice and flexibility."

"With a renewed confidence in travel between Canada and Hong Kong, we are seeing an increased demand for air services to Hong Kong," said Aliana Ho,  Hong Kong Tourism Board's Director for Canada. "We welcome Air Canada's improved direct access which will benefit both our business and leisure travellers between Canada's largest city and Hong Kong, Asia's World City."

Flights on the new route are operated with Air Canada's 282-seat Airbus A340 aircraft featuring the carrier's recently re-designed Executive First service that offers customers first class comfort and style at business class fares.

In Vancouver, customers now have the choice of a mid-day departure that arrives in Hong Kong in the evening or a night time departure that arrives in Hong Kong early morning.
