Celebrating New Services to Zurich and Paris

Earlier this month, Vancouver International Airport celebrated the launch of two new, non-stop seasonal services: Air Canada's thrice-weekly service to Zurich that had its inaugural flight on June 7 and four-time weekly service to Paris, launched on June 8. These new routes will further connect YVR's passengers with two key European cities.

These two new services have a direct economic benefit, generating $10.8 million in total economic output for British Columbia. Air Canada will service the new routes with their state-of-the-art 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, featuring Air Canada's Signature Class lie-flat pod suites, Premium Economy and Economy Class seats.
