Air Canada introduces new Vancouver-Boston service

Air Canada has announced the introduction of daily summer seasonal service between Vancouver and Boston starting June 23, 2017 until Sept. 4, 2017. Special introductory fares start at $243 one-way, all in, with tickets now available for purchase.

“We continue to strategically expand our transborder network and we are excited to link Vancouver and Boston with daily non-stop flights this summer, complementing our existing Boston services from Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Halifax. These new non-stop flights will shave two hours of travel time for customers travelling between the Canadian West Coast and the U.S. northeastern seaboard,” said Benjamin Smith, president, passenger airlines, at Air Canada.

“Customers travelling from the Greater Boston area, the sixth most populous area in the U.S., will also enjoy convenient connections at our YVR hub to Western Canada and to our daily flights to both Sydney and Brisbane, Australia, featuring competitive elapsed times.”

The new non-stop services will be operated by Air Canada starting June 23, 2017 with 120-seat Airbus A319 aircraft offering a choice of Business and Economy Class service. All flights provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption, Star Alliance reciprocal benefits and, for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access at the Vancouver hub, priority boarding and other benefits.
