California here we come! With rumors swirling around of a reboot of the popular early aughts TV show, the O.C., now’s the time to book your dream California getaway with Air Canada.

Starting October 2, 2021, Air Canada will offer direct flights between Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and John Wayne Airport Orange County (SNA) four times a week (Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Thursday). The flight will be operated on a Boeing 737 MAX 8 with seat capacity for 169. We're thrilled about Air Canada's decision to expand their network from YVR with more options to the U.S.

Whether you’re off to Disneyland with your family, surfing and relaxing ocean side on one of many incredible beaches, road tripping up the Cali coast with a friend or just visiting the renowned SoCal area, this new non-stop route will get you as close as possible to the action.

Despite restrictions at the land border extended until October 21, 2021, Canadians are currently allowed to fly into the U.S., if they present proof of a negative Covid-19 test administered during the three days before their travel. Please check with Air Canada to make sure you meet all the requirements to enter the U.S.
