Air Canada restarts Brisbane and Auckland flights


With travel confidence continuing to improve in 2022, Air Canada is making the most of the upbeat mood. The Star Alliance member will boost its Sydney-Vancouver flights to a daily schedule as of the 1st May, up from the current four days a week, in the face of Qantas’ own thrice-weekly Sydney-Vancouver service.

Air Canada will also bring back direct Brisbane-Vancouver flights – the only carrier serving this trans-Pacific corridor – beginning 1st July from Vancouver (on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) and July 3 from Brisbane (on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday).

Auckland is also back on Air Canada’s map, with three flights a week from the 10th November.

The Brisbane and Auckland flights will be handled by Air Canada’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners, which – like the Sydney-Vancouver Boeing 777 – feature spacious Signature Class lie-flat business suites and WiFi.

Business class travellers and those with top-tier frequent flyer status can begin their journey from Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland from the lounges of Star Alliance partner Air New Zealand, with the Signature Suite lounge at Vancouver slated to reopen by mid-year.

  • Vancouver-Sydney flights ramp up to daily from 1st May
  • Vancouver-Brisbane flights resume 1st July
  • Vancouver-Auckland flights resume 10th November
