AC’s Calgary-Tokyo Narita flights now year-round

Air Canada has announced that its Calgary to Tokyo Narita non-stop flights will operate year-round beginning this winter. “Since we launched this route in March 2010, demand has been strong from business and leisure travellers as well as freight forwarders. This is a great example of how the Calgary business community, the Calgary Airport Authority, Travel Alberta and our travel partners understand that our industry is a significant catalyst for economic growth and have all come together to enable sustainable, year-round, direct links to Asia via Tokyo Narita’s international gateway which offers a multitude of convenient flight options to Japan, China, Korea and beyond,”said Ben Smith, executive vice-president and chief commercial officer at Air Canada. Beginning April 27, Air Canada will increase its Calgary-Tokyo summer service to five weekly flights. Air Canada operates its Calgary-Tokyo flights with 211-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, offering a choice of Economy Class and Executive First service featuring lie-flat bed suites. (
