Air Canada Ready to Reconnect Australia and Canada

September 15, 2021 Aviation No Comments

Following the Government of Canada’s announcement to reopen international borders on September 7, Air Canada is pleased today to unveil additional details of its planned Sydney (SYD) – Vancouver (YVR) schedule. Seats are available for sale through all booking channels including and via travel agencies.

The loosening of restrictions enables foreign nationals to fly to Canada who have been fully vaccinated with the Government of Canada-accepted vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and J&J) at least 14 days prior to departure and who meet specific entry requirements to enter Canada for non-essential travel. See the Government of Canada’s full list of requirements for travellers entering Canada.

“As travel restrictions ease across the globe, we are committed to rebuild our international network and continue as a global carrier connecting the world with Canada. With Australians eager to travel again to Canada, we are ready to reunite customers with their families and friends,” said Vic Naughton, General Manager, Australia and New Zealand at Air Canada. “Our flights from Sydney to Vancouver conveniently connect to our flights across Canada and the U.S. at our Vancouver hub. With our industry-leading CleanCare+ bio-safety protocols, Air Canada has your health and safety as its top priority. We know people are excited to travel, and we look forward to welcoming our customers onboard.”

Air Canada is offering four flights per week on a 300-seat B777-200LR featuring a choice of three cabins of service: Air Canada Signature Class, Premium Economy and Economy class.

Flight schedule from Sydney (SYD) – Vancouver (YVR): 

Flight Route Departure Time Arrival Time Aircraft Day of Operation
AC034 Sydney to Vancouver 11:45 07:00 B777-200LR Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sun
AC033 Vancouver to Sydney 22:30 09:05 +2 B777-200LR Tues, Wed, Fri, Sun
