Air Canada to start daily Vancouver to Brisbane service from next June

18 October 2022

The $200 million Attracting Investment Fund has secured another success with Air Canada to start daily Vancouver to Brisbane services from June 2023.

Air Canada was one of the first airlines to secure support from the State Government and industry fund when it started flying four services last July.

The airline’s shift to daily flights opens up new opportunities for an extra 33,500 visitors to enjoy the great Queensland holiday lifestyle and sunshine we know Canadians love.

The daily services from Vancouver will support 680 Queensland jobs and a $70 million boost for our visitor economy.

Air Canada’s daily services will deliver almost 109,000 seats each year, direct to Brisbane.

As Queensland’s eleventh biggest visitor market before the COVID-19 pandemic, 67,000 Canadians spent on average 18 days supporting the State’s visitor economy.
