Beginning June 17, 2016, Air Canada will launch a new year-round, daily non-stop service between Toronto’s Pearson International Airport and Seoul, Korea’s Incheon International Airport.

The addition of Seoul is part of Air Canada’s ongoing expansion of its international services and to promote the new route, the carrier is offering a special introductory fare starting from CDN$1,399, round-trip all-in, until Nov. 8, 2015 for travel June 17 to June 23 and Sept. 1 to Sept. 30, 2016. Tickets are now available for purchase.

Benjamin Smith, president, passenger airlines at Air Canada, said: “The introduction of non-stop flights between our main Toronto hub and Seoul further strengthens Air Canada’s presence in the growing Asian market.”

Smith continued: “This new route will provide some of the fastest travel times for customers traveling to and from South Korea and Eastern Canada, the U.S. Northeast and South America via our main hub in Toronto. Together with our Vancouver-Seoul service, Air Canada will operate the most flights of any airline between Canada and South Korea with up to 14 flights per week.”

He noted as well that: “Our Toronto-Seoul non-stop flights will be operated with Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft featuring our newly designed international product offering customers a choice of three cabins of service and industry-leading amenities. As we renew and grow our international fleet to include 21 Boeing 787 aircraft by 2016 of the 37 on order, we are ramping up conversion of existing routes to Dreamliner service from Toronto to Asia, Europe and South America in order to provide our customers with the comfort and benefits of the most technologically advanced commercial aircraft flying today.”
