Air Canada is adding new routes and increasing seasonal capacity on existing ones from the UK next year.

The Canadian airline will be offering a double-daily service on its Heathrow to Vancouver route from June to September using its new Dreamliner Boeing B787-9 aircraft. This new operation will complement its existing year-round service.

The B787-9 service will feature three cabins, international Business Class with 180-degree lie-flat pod seating, Premium Economy and Economy.

The carrier will also be launching from Gatwick next year with its leisure-focused Air Canada rouge service, which will feature the airline's Premium Rouge service.

Other new services include a seasonal thrice-weekly Glasgow to Toronto,  Manchester to Toronto and Edinburgh to Toronto flights.
The airline is also investing heavily in reconfiguring its Boeing 777 aircraft for next summer.

The airline's manager UK leisure sales, Maggie Boto-White, said: "This is a major investment for Air Canada along with our order of 37 new Dreamliners to be delivered by 2019."
