Air Canada has announced that it will upgrade its non-stop flights between Ottawa and London–Heathrow to operate the daily service with its state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
Beginning next spring, customers travelling between Ottawa and London–Heathrow will have the option to fly in Air Canada’s signature cabin, featuring fully lie-flat suites, as well as the added choice of a Premium Economy cabin.
“Air Canada is pleased to offer customers travelling between Ottawa and London-Heathrow the added comfort of service aboard our flagship Boeing 787 Dreamliner,” said Mark Galardo, vice president, Network Planning at Air Canada.
“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.”
The 255-seat Boeing 787-8, configured in three cabins of service, will be dedicated year-round to the route beginning March 29, 2020. It will replace a 211-seat Boeing 767-300ER with two cabins of service.
At the same time, Air Canada has announced that it is suspending its summer seasonal, Ottawa–Frankfurt service.
The last flight on this route will be operated on October 24, 2019.
Customers travelling to Europe from Ottawa next summer will have an additional option to fly to Frankfurt on a new seasonal service provided by its Star Alliance partner Lufthansa, which will begin operating on May 16, 2020 and end on October 24, 2020.
