Air Canada announced that it will launch non-stop flight service between Vancouver and Santa Ana in Orange County, California, beginning June 15, 2020.
"We are very pleased to announce new daily, year-round flights from Vancouver to Orange County as we strategically expand our transborder network into the populous greater Los Angeles area," said Mark Galardo, vice president, network planning and alliances, at Air Canada.
"In addition to offering direct flights to the iconic tourism, sports and entertainment attractions that Orange County is known for, our new flights will also conveniently link the increasing start-up, tech and innovator businesses that both Vancouver and southern California are home to. Air Canada's Orange County flights will also offer a wide array of connections across Canada and to Australia and India via our YVR hub."
Air Canada is the leading carrier between Canada and California, offering up to 43 daily flights from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, and Montreal to seven destinations in California, including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, Palm Springs and, beginning June 15, Orange County.
While the new route is still subject to final airport authority approvals, Air Canada plans to launch the service with special introductory fares from Vancouver to Orange County starting as low as CAD$187 one-way, all in.
