Air Canada is increasing its daily, non-stop services between Vancouver, Canada and Sydney, Australia to ten flights per week over the Canadian peak December and January ski season. The additional flights are subject to slot approvals.
“We are always looking for opportunities to further build our presence in key international markets,” said Marcel Forget, Vice President, Network Planning. “These additional flights have been added to meet expected demand from the south Pacific for the upcoming Canadian ski season as well as expected demand from Canadians looking to escape winter to Sydney and beyond.”
The additional flights will operate from December 14, 2012 until January 30, 2013. Flight AC35 from Vancouver-Sydney operates on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, departing Vancouver at 10:10 pm, arriving Sydney at 8:45 am two days later. Flight AC36 from Sydney –Vancouver operates on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, leaving Sydney at 7:00 pm, arriving Vancouver at 2:10 pm, same day. Flights are timed to offer convenient connections in Vancouver to Air Canada’s vast network across North America including British Columbia’s ski resort communities in the Okanagan. In Sydney, convenient connections are available across the south Pacific.
All Air Canada flights between Canada and Australia are operated with Boeing 777-200LR aircraft offering a choice of Executive First or Economy Class service, with personal entertainment systems available at every seat throughout the aircraft.
