Lighter, brighter days and slightly balmier weather means that YVR’s busy summer travel season will get into full swing this month. Several airline partners are increasing service for the May-to-September season, with new and returning additions to YVR’s roster of seasonal non-stop destinations.
Frequencies to key destinations in China will see a boost this summer, with Air Canada and Air China both increasing Vancouver-Beijing service to 11 flights per week. Travellers bound for Shanghai will have the pick of one of 13 flights per week on China Eastern, while China Southern will offer daily summer service to Guangzhou.
Delta Air Lines will offer daily summer service to New York’s JFK Airport. Meanwhile, United Airlines will run weekend service (Saturday and Sunday) connecting Vancouver and Washington, D.C.
Longtime YVR airline Lufthansa will inaugurate seasonal, daily non-stop service to Munich beginning in May. Germany’s third-largest city and birthplace of Oktoberfest promises to be the next hotspot for YVR’s Europe-bound summer travellers. Prost!
Residents of the Northern Hemisphere can chase winter south on one of 10 weekly Air Canada flights to Sydney, Australia or five weekly flights to Auckland on Air New Zealand. And back for a second consecutive year is Virgin Atlantic and its summer service to London Heathrow.
