Air Canada has announced an earlier resumption of its seasonal service between Vancouver and Bangkok. Partnering with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), flights will take off starting October 27, 2024.

This moves the scheduling forwards by 2 months, instead of the previously anticipated December launch.

The change reflects the route’s strong performance since its 2022 debut and caters to the rising demand for travel between these vibrant cities.

Bangkok Increased Connectivity

From October through November 2024, Air Canada will offer three weekly flights, providing travelers with convenient access to Bangkok’s rich culture, delectable cuisine, and stunning natural landscapes.

To further meet passenger needs, the frequency will increase to five weekly flights starting December 2024 and continuing through March 2025.

Passengers can experience this comfortable journey aboard a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, featuring 298 seats with options for Air Canada Signature, Premium Economy, and Economy Class.

This service expansion reflects TAT and Air Canada’s dedication to exceptional travel experiences. It caters to the growing desire of Canadians to escape winter’s chill and embrace Thailand’s warm hospitality.

Director Chompu Marusachot of TAT’s New York Office expressed her enthusiasm: “We are thrilled by Air Canada’s commitment to strengthening Canada-Thailand connectivity.”

“The earlier launch date signifies our strong partnership and opens new avenues for travelers to explore Thailand’s diverse offerings.”

“Together, we aim to create unforgettable journeys for Canadians and contribute to Thailand’s tourism industry.”

Unforgettable Experiences in “Amazing Thailand”

Nestled just 15 degrees north of the equator, Thailand, also known as the “Land of Smiles,” is a Southeast Asian gem.

From the bustling capital of Bangkok to captivating destinations like Chiang Mai, Phuket, Koh Samui, and Krabi, Thailand offers a wealth of experiences.

Visitors can indulge in world-class luxury resorts, explore breathtaking architecture, delve into vibrant culture and cuisine, and embark on exciting adventures.
