Air Canada to double Beijing flights

This summer, Air Canada is to double its daily Vancouver- Beijing service and increase the frequencies of its Toronto-Shanghai non- stop flights. The added Vancouver-Beijing daily flight will operate between July 1 and September 30, using a 211-seat Boeing 767-300 aircraft.

The Toronto-Shanghai service will begin on April 6, with service three days a week. Effective June 30, it will increase to daily service, starting for the summer peak and continue as a three-day-a-week service for the 2007-2008 winter schedule.

In total, Air Canada will operate five daily non-stop flights between Canada and China this summer. The premium Executive First Service includes lie-flat seats on new Boeing 777 aircraft on select flights (between Toronto and Beijing).
