Air Canada to resume Taipei route after 14-year hiatus
Taipei, May 2 (CNA) Air Canada has set June 9 as the day it will resume its Vancouver-Taipei service after a 14-year hiatus, the carrier's Senior Director of Commercial Strategy Timothy Liu said Tuesday.
"Air Canada has not forgotten Taiwan," said Liu, who is visiting Taipei. He said his company will use its most efficient Boeing 787-9 passenger jet on the route, with one flight flying between the two destinations every day of the week.
The flight will depart from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport at 3:55 p.m. local time, arriving at Vancouver International Airport at 11:25 a.m. the following day, Vancouver time.
The return flight will leave Vancouver at 11:10 a.m. on the same day, arriving in Taoyuan at 2:15 p.m. the following day, making it convenient for travelers who need to take high speed rail trains to central and southern Taiwan.
Chen Mei-chih, Air Canada's Taiwan manager, said she expects family reunions will be the main travel reason for passengers flying the cross-Pacific route, as Vancouver has long been a favorite city for Taiwanese emigres.
She said she hopes to welcome even more Taiwanese travelers aboard Air Canada flights, which can take them to more than 60 domestic destinations from Vancouver.
