Air Canada inaugurates Vancouver-Auckland route

Canadian airline's first non-stop destination in New Zealand

Air Canada has commenced non-stop seasonal services linking Canada and New Zealand with the launch of its new Vancouver-Auckland service.

Flights will operate on a four-weekly basis from now through until the end of March 2020 and will have the potential to become year-round in 12 months time.

“We are excited to launch our newest South Pacific route to Auckland which offers additional opportunities for North Americans travelling to enjoy New Zealand’s summer season, and for New Zealanders travelling for a Canadian winter vacation,” said Mark Galardo, Vice President, Network Planning at Air Canada.

“Our Auckland flights are timed to conveniently connect at our extensive Vancouver trans-Pacific hub to and from a multitude of non-stop destinations throughout North America including New York-Newark.”

Air Canada has deployed its state-of-the-art Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner on the route, featuring 20 Signature Class lie-flat seats, 21 Premium Economy and 214 Economy Class seats with upgraded in-flight entertainment at every seat throughout the aircraft.
