New route from YVR to Auckland via Air Canada

Air Canada’s state-of-the-art Dreamliner.

Air Canada will offer a new non-stop, seasonal route from Vancouver to Auckland, New Zealand, starting December 19, 2019. This service will operate four times weekly on Air Canada’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

The decision to launch this route advantageously expands Air Canada’s presence internationally, particularly in the Asia-Pacific market. Vancouver has become an increasingly popular destination for Kiwi tourists, especially during the winter season.

The route also further solidifies YVR’s position as an international hub. Travellers from New Zealand will now have increased access to the multitude of routes flying out of YVR, with the newly announced flights timed to connect with many non-stop North American destinations out of YVR.

The new route will provide important economic benefits to the B.C. region, while providing Canadians access to a city with a dynamic culture and a summer getaway during Canada’s winter months.

Auckland is routinely rated one of the most livable cities in the world and offers the perfect mix of natural and urban wonders. The city showcases New Zealand’s multitude of adventurous activities and vibrant Polynesian-influenced culture.

Flights to this destination will begin December 19, 2019 through March 2020. For more information, visit
