Canada-Australia bilateral expanded

The Governments of Canada and Australia have confirmed that they have come to a mutually beneficial agreement expanding the air bilateral accord between both countries which in turn should facilitate greater people and cargo movement.

The main highlights are as follows:
  • Seat limitation increased from 3000 to 6000 per week
  • Effective December 2016, it is further increased to 9000 per week
Currently, Air Canada offers nonstop daily service from YVR to SYD using a B777-200LR (1890 weekly seats) + 3 weekly YVR-BNE using a B787-8 (753 seats). 

The new bilateral agreement would permit Air Canada to seriously ponder launching new 5 weekly flights to MEL from YVR using a B789 (15 hours flying time) as well as increase YVR-SYD in peak season from daily to 11 weekly (if required)
