Air Canada to fly Brisbane-Vancouver June 2016

Air Canada will begin direct Boeing 787 flights between Vancouver and Brisbane from June 2016.
The non-stop service will initially run three days a week, although Air Canada says it intends to boost this to the more desirable daily schedule "subject to obtaining the necessary government approvals".
Beginning on June 17 2016, flight AC35 will leave Vancouver at 11.45pm every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, to reach Brisbane at 7.15am two days later.
The AC36 return leg will be wheels up from Brisbane at 10.40am on Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday, arriving into Vancouver at 7.15am the same day.
Air Canada says the timetable fits neatly into onwards flights from Vancouver to other Canadian and US destinations. Tickets will be available for purchase from July 16, 2015.
"The new route increases our presence in the Asia-Pacific market at a time when trade and travel in the region and between North America is growing, with a further boost expected from the Trans-Pacific Partnership now under negotiation" observed Air Canada President and CEO Calin Rovinescu.
"Canadian travellers are at an all-time high to Queensland" added Brisbane Airport CEO Julieanne Alroe, citing strong corporate links between Queensland and Canada "due to the resource sector."
