The new Melbourne service is timed to connect to and from domestic flights from Adelaide, Hobart and Perth operated by Air Canada’s codeshare partner Virgin Australia.Air Canada’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft offers a choice of three cabins: Air Canada Signature Class (featuring the airline’s next generation Executive Pod), Premium Economy Class and Economy Class.“Our new Melbourne service offers not just the only direct link to Canada but also one of the fastest ways for Australians to reach New York and the US east coast,” said Air Canada General Manager Australia and New Zealand Vic Naughton.“A key reason is that upon arrival in Vancouver International Airport, passengers who are transiting to the US can seamlessly pass through the airport’s US immigration and customs clearance facilities without collecting their bags. Once through they then simply board their connecting flight and collect their luggage when they touch down in the US.”last_img read more
