Air Canada is getting set to upgrade its daily non-stop flights from Ottawa to London-Heathrow with its state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
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.
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.
Air Canada also announced it is suspending its summer seasonal, Ottawa-Frankfurt service. The last flight on this route will be operated on Oct. 24. Customers travelling to Europe from Ottawa next summer will have an additional option to fly to Frankfurt on a new seasonal service provided by Star Alliance partner Lufthansa, which will begin operating on May 16, 2020 and end Oct. 24, 2020.
