Air Canada has made the announcement that they will be launching daily nonstop service from Toronto to Tokyo. The service will be year-round and will begin on July 1, 2014. According to TravelMole, the announcement is significant for two reasons. First, this will be the only nonstop flight from Canada to Tokyo. The other reason is that this will be the first daytime flight offered to Tokyo from anywhere within North America.
Air Canada's executive vice president and chief commercial officer Ben Smith said the new flights will increase Toronto’s position as a global hub. The new daily, nonstop flights will make it easier for people in Canada and the northeast U.S. to travel to Tokyo, which is one of the busiest airports in the world. Global Traveler magazine recently named Air Canada the best airline in North America.
