Air Canada announced the expansion of its international network with the addition of Bangkok, Thailand, the carrier’s first non-stop service to South-East Asia. The airline will also be resuming flights to Mumbai, its second destination in the India market.

Air Canada’s seasonal service to BKK will operate from its trans-Pacific hub at YVR beginning 01DEC 2022, while the carrier’s BOM flights will operate from YYZ via LHR beginning 29OCT. Both routes are subject to receiving final government approvals.

“We are extremely pleased to be launching our first non-stop service to South-East Asia this winter, the only one between North America and Thailand…For further convenience, our Bangkok flights will connect to our extensive domestic and trans-border network giving customers added seamlessness and choice when travelling,” said Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management, at Air Canada.

The introduction of the new route to BKK follows the announcement that Thailand will remove its “Thailand Pass” and USD $10,000 health insurance entry requirements.

“We are also excited to return to Mumbai, India’s largest city and an important financial, commercial, and entertainment hub, complementing our 13 weekly flights from Canada to Delhi,” Galardo added. “The India market remains very important to Air Canada, and we are committed to resuming our currently paused non-stop services on Toronto-Mumbai and Vancouver-Delhi when circumstances allow.”

The planned service between YVR and BKK, as well as between YYZ and BOM via LHR, will be operated with Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft featuring three cabins of service for customers to choose from, including Economy Class, Premium Economy and lie-flat seats in Signature Class. Bookings are now open.
