Air Canada to Launch Toronto-Shanghai non-stop Flights

Air Canada is to launch non-stop services between Toronto and Shanghai on June 16, 2006.

The airline will operate three non-stop flights per week between Toronto and China's largest city, complementing its Toronto-Beijing non-stop service launched in June 2005, and its daily non-stop flights to both Shanghai and Beijing from Vancouver. Air Canada also operates twice daily flights to Hong Kong including non-stop services from Toronto.

With an elapsed time of 14 hours 45 minutes westbound and 13 hours 40 minutes eastbound, Air Canada's new Toronto-Shanghai service will save travellers more than 3 hours in each direction compared to the Vancouver routing.

Air Canada will operate the new route using 286-seat A340-300 aircraft.

With a 10:15 departure from Toronto on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday arriving in Shanghai at 13:00 the next day, flight AC071 is timed to offer convenient morning connections from points throughout Air Canada's extensive global network, particularly in eastern Canada, the United States and Latin America.

The eastbound flight, AC072, leaves Shanghai at 14:45 on Monday, Thursday and Saturday and arrives in Toronto at 16:25 the same day, providing maximum connecting options throughout the Americas.

With the addition of Toronto-Shanghai non-stop service, Air Canada will offer customers up to 13 non-stop flights per day in each direction between Canada and seven destinations in Asia. From its main hub in Toronto, the carrier operates non-stop flights to Hong Kong, Tokyo, Beijing and Seoul, and Delhi via Zurich. From its Asia Pacific gateway in Vancouver, Air Canada serves Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, Osaka, and Seoul with daily non- stop flights.
