Continues strategic international expansion from YVR to London Gatwick, Frankfurt and Nagoya.


VANCOUVER - Air Canada inaugurated daily, year-round flights from Vancouver to Taipei, Taiwan, the carrier's tenth destination in Asia with the departure of AC011 following a gate celebration at YVR.

"Air Canada is very pleased to return to Taipei, an important and significant economic centre, as part of our ongoing global expansion," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. "Our Taipei flights are operated with our state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliners featuring our industry-leading international services. The strategic addition of these daily year-round flights strengthens our YVR trans-Pacific hub which combined with our extensive North American network, provides convenient options and a competitive elapsed travel time between North America and Taiwan."

Later tonight, the carrier will also begin seasonal, three times weekly service to London Gatwick operated by Air Canada Rouge with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft - the fourth European destination served from Air Canada's YVR hub.

All routes are timed to optimize connectivity at Air Canada's YVR hub to and from its extensive network from across North America. All flights provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption and, for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access, priority boarding and other benefits.
