Air Canada increases Brisbane frequencies

Air Canada has officially announced that as a result of a liberalized bilateral accord struck between Canada and Australia last week, it shall be increasing its frequencies to Brisbane from June 2016.

Originally planned to be 3 weekly nonstop flights from YVR-Vancouver using a B788, these will now be increased to daily nonstop from the on set itself using the same aircraft type. 

As a result of the above, the total number of weekly seats (one way) in IATA S16 season that AC will be deploying to Australia is 2100 (SYDYVR B77L daily) + 1757 (daily BNEYVR B788) giving a total of 3857 which means AC has the liberty to add another 2143 seats per week into the market should it be merited as the new bilateral allows 6000 per week per direction. If they decide to launch YVR-MEL on a daily basis with the B789 it means 2086 seats added hence under the 2143 balance amount remaining!
