Air Canada has said that it will upgrade its non-stop flights from Ottawa to London-Heathrow to operate the daily service with its state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
Set to commence next spring, customers travelling between Ottawa and London-Heathrow will be able to fly in Air Canada’s Signature cabin, featuring fully lie-flat suites, as well as the choice of a Premium Economy cabin.
The 255-seat Boeing 787-8, configured in three cabins of service, will be operated year-round on the route beginning March 29, 2020. It will replace a 211-seat Boeing 767-300ER with two cabins of service.
‘Air Canada is pleased to offer customers travelling between Ottawa and London-Heathrow the added comfort of service aboard our flagship Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Customers love this aircraft whose revolutionary design improves the on-board air quality, which, combined with other features such as our next generation cabin, mood lighting and other amenities, mitigates jet lag. As a result, customers arrive better rested to hit the ground running for either business or pleasure. With the Dreamliner, we are also now offering customers flying between Ottawa and London the additional option of Air Canada’s Premium Economy cabin,’ said Mark Galardo, vice president, Network Planning at Air Canada.
Air Canada serves nearly 220 airports on six continents and provides scheduled passenger service directly to 62 airports in Canada, 54 in the United States and 101 in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and South America.
