Air Canada will offer the only nonstop flight between North America and Thailand this winter when it adds new service to Bangkok.

The Star Alliance carrier will connect Vancouver and Bangkok from December 1 to April 14, Air Canada said Monday. The route is the first between North America and Thailand since Thai Airways ended nonstop flights between Bangkok and Los Angeles in 2012, Cirium schedule data show.

In addition, Air Canada will also resume service between Toronto and Mumbai, which was suspended in March 2020, with a stop in London Heathrow due to the closure of Russian airspace on October 29. Both the Bangkok and Mumbai routes will be served with Boeing 787 aircraft.

“We continue to pursue our strategy of expanding our global network in response to pent-up demand, and expect to operate approximately 81 per cent of our 2019 international capacity this winter,” Air Canada Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management Mark Galardo said in a statement.
