Vancouver Airport Authority Congratulates Air China on New Travel Programs
January 27, 2012
Vancouver Airport Authority congratulates Air China on it being awarded Transit Without Visa (TWOV) and China Transit Trial (CTT) status from the Government of Canada.
Air China is the first and only mainland Chinese carrier – and one of five international airlines serving Canada – to join TWOV and CTT, programs designed to enable Chinese passengers to travel to and from the U.S. through YVR without obtaining a Canadian visa.
Air China has been a TWOV participant since mid-2011, and its CTT status comes into effect February 1, 2012.
Air China’s TWOV and CTT status complements the Airport Authority’s aggressive strategy to be the gateway of choice for travellers and airlines as it allows Air China to connect passengers seamlessly between Asia and North America.
