Air Canada Ottawa Heathrow upgrade

Non-stop Ottawa – Heathrow flights operated by Air Canada are being upgraded next spring to a Boeing B787 Dreamliner service featuring the carrier’s Signature cabin, with fully lie-flat suites, plus a new Premium Economy cabin.

The Dreamliner is configured with 255 seats across three cabins and will enter service from 29 March 2020, replacing Air Canada’s 211-seat two-class Boeing B767-2300ER.

Vice-president network planning Mark Galardo said: "Our passengers love the Dreamliner, especially the revolutionary design which improves on-board air quality and combined with our new cabin and other amenities mitigates jet lag. 

“As a result, passengers arrive better rested to hit the ground running for either business or pleasure. The aircraft also gives us the additional option of Air Canada's Premium Economy cabin." 

Elsewhere, Air Canada is suspending its summer seasonal service between Ottawa and Frankfurt with the last flight being operated on 24 October this year.

Passengers between the two points next summer are being referred to a new seasonal service provided by the Canadian carrier’s Star Alliance partner Lufthansa, which will begin operating on 16 May 2020 and end on 24 October 2020.
