Air Canada has launched new non-stop flights from Vancouver, which are the only non-stop flights between Canada and Brisbane.
On Friday morning, June 3, the 787 Dreamliner’s flight AC35 arrived in Brisbane from Vancouver. It was the inaugural flight of Air Canada’s newly launched service and the number of flights will be increased from June 17. These flights are the only non-stop service linking Canada and the ‘Sunshine State’ of Australia – Queensland.
The President of Passenger Airlines at Air Canada, Benjamin Smith, called Brisbane an important hub for tourism gateway and commercial business. He said that they are happy to launch the only non-stop fight connecting Canada and Brisbane. The Queensland city serves as the entrance to the amazing Gold Coast, the iconic Great Barrier Reef, and different UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Mr Smith added that the newly launched Brisbane flights along with their already running flights between Canada and Sydney would keep Air Canada at the top position for providing the most seats between Canada and Australia. According to him, it became possible due to the airline company’s strong relationship with Brisbane Airport and Canadian and Australian tourism partners.
CEO and Managing Director of Brisbane Airport Corporation, Julieanne Alroe, said that the new Brisbane-Vancouver flights are certainly going to influence the economy of the state in a positive way. She also added that the new flights would make it easy for Australian travellers to travel to the famous rugged and beautiful landscape of Canada.
