Fly direct to Canada
AIR Canada will begin direct flights between Brisbane and Vancouver from next June. It will be the second Australian destination serviced by the airline, which operates a daily service from Sydney. The new three- times a week service to Vancouver from Brisbane will cut five hours from the trip for travellers who now fly via Sydney, or Los Angeles. In the year to May, 125,600 Aussies went to Canada. Air Canada will put its new Dreamliner on the Brisbane service, providing 1500 seats a week.
