In addition to Vancouver-Bangkok, Air Canada will also be resuming flights to Mumbai, its second destination in the India market. Service will start Oct. 29 from Toronto via London-Heathrow, also onboard a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, complementing Air Canada’s 13 weekly flights from Canada to Delhi.

Both routes are subject to receiving final government approvals.

“We are extremely pleased to be launching our first nonstop service to Southeast Asia this winter, the only one between North America and Thailand,” said Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management, Air Canada. “Thailand is a popular leisure destination for Canadians and this new service will give Aeroplan members exciting opportunities to both earn and redeem their points. For further convenience, our Bangkok flights will connect to our extensive domestic and transborder network, giving customers added seamlessness and choice when travelling.”

On Air Canada’s return to Mumbai, Galardo added:” Our Mumbai services are scheduled to operate with a stop in London Heathrow, offering connectivity to more than a dozen Air Canada and Star Alliance partner United Airlines flights between North America and London, as well as additional options for travel between the UK and India. The India market remains very important to Air Canada and we are committed to resuming our currently paused nonstop services on Toronto-Mumbai and Vancouver-Delhi when circumstances allow.”

Air Canada is bolstering its international winter offering to the South Pacific region with the return of seasonal service from Vancouver to Auckland, New Zealand, and additional flights to Sydney and Brisbane, Australia. The carrier is also re-establishing international services to South America with the resumption of routes from Montreal and Toronto to Lima, Peru on a seasonal basis.
