Air Canada is expanding its route network with the addition of Bangkok, Thailand – the carrier’s first non-stop service to South-east Asia – as well as resuming flights to Mumbai, India.
Both routes are subject to receiving final government approvals.
Air Canada’s seasonal service to Bangkok will operate from Vancouver International Airport, while the carrier’s Mumbai flights will operate from Toronto Pearson International via London-Heathrow.
Mark Galardo, senior vice president, network planning and revenue management, Air Canada, said: “We are extremely pleased to be launching our first non-stop service to South-east Asia this winter, the only direct flight between North America and Thailand.
Galardo added: “We continue to pursue our strategy of expanding our global network in response to pent-up demand and expect to operate approximately 81 per cent of our 2019 international capacity this winter.”
