Air Canada will introduce daily service between Vancouver and Yellowknife starting Dec. 15 and operating until April 1, 2018.
Special introductory fares start at $219 one-way, all in, and tickets are now available for purchase.
“We continue to strategically build our Vancouver hub and we are excited to link Vancouver and Yellowknife with daily non-stop flights this winter, complementing our existing Yellowknife services from Calgary and Edmonton. These new non-stop flights will shave off almost four hours of round-trip travel time for customers travelling between Canada’s west coast and the Northwest Territories,” said Benjamin Smith, president, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada. “In addition to convenient business travel between these two areas, these new flights also connect seamlessly at our YVR trans-Pacific hub to and from our Asia and US transborder networks, offering one-stop ease for visitors travelling to enjoy Canada’s spectacular Aurora Borealis and northern winter adventures.”
The new non-stop service will be offered onboard 75-seat Bombardier CRJ-705 aircraft featuring a choice of Business Class or Economy service operated by Jazz Aviation LP under the Air Canada Express banner.
