Air Canada launches new service to connect Dallas/Fort Worth with Vancouver
Feb 17, 2017: Air Canada has expanded its service between Texas and Canada, now offering customers nonstop daily flights from Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) Airport to Vancouver, British Columbia.
“DFW Airport has had a great relationship with Air Canada since flights to Toronto started in 1976, and we are pleased that the airline is now offering our customers access to Vancouver,” said John Ackerman, DFW Airport’s executive vice president of Global Strategy and Development.
“Last year, more than 750,000 passengers traveled between DFW and Canada, with nearly 225,000 passengers to British Columbia.”
Air Canada provides passenger service directly to 64 airports in Canada, 55 in the United States and 87 throughout the rest of the world.
“Connecting the booming Metroplex and even larger region directly with the growing global hub of Vancouver will provide passengers with numerous, convenient travel options,” said Sara Wilshaw, Consul General of Canada.
Flights will be operated by Jazz Aviation LP with 75-seat, Wi-Fi equipped CRJ-705 aircraft, offering Business and Economy cabins, as well as in-flight entertainment at every seat.
“Texas is popular with Canadians for both business and leisure and we believe Texans will be keen to visit Vancouver, one of Canada’s most beautiful and dynamic cities,” said Lisa Pierce, senior director, USA Sales and Marketing at Air Canada.
“Recognising the appeal of North Texas, Air Canada is devoting considerable capacity to the market we already have service four times daily from Toronto. In addition to this new Vancouver route, we will be adding daily service from Montreal in May.”
This newest route strengthens DFW Airport’s position as the premier mid-continent gateway.
