Vancouver International Airport (YVR) welcomed the inaugural flight of Air Canada’s new route between YVR and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) on June 23, the airline has announced.
The non-stop seasonal service will arrive at YVR daily and operate until Sept. 4, 2017.
Being the only non-stop connection between Vancouver and Boston, the flight is timed strategically to connect travellers with other Asian and South Pacific flights out of YVR. “We are excited that Air Canada is now offering non-stop service to one of our most under-served markets,” Craig Richmond, president & CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority, stated in a release.
“Air Canada’s new daily flight from YVR to Boston will connect travellers from British Columbia to the vital Northeastern business hub and a region rich in history and culture.” Boston is the largest city in Massachusetts and will provide British Columbians with great opportunities for leisure travel and business.
For those traveling from Boston, this flight is timed to facilitate easy access to Vancouver’s seaport for access to cruise ships leaving Vancouver.
The YVR-BOS route uses an Air Canada Airbus 319 aircraft with seat capacity for 120 passengers.
