CACC Brisbane Celebrates Air Canada’s BNE-YVR Route

By 2 July, 2022News

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, June 16, 2022 – The Canadian Australian Chamber of Commerce (CACC) congratulates corporate sponsor, Air Canada, on its resumption of non-stop flights between Brisbane and Vancouver. To recognise this important milestone and benefit to Australian and Canadian businesses, a special breakfast and pre-launch event was held in Brisbane.

Among those joining Air Canada’s celebration are representatives from CACC, Canada’s High Commissioner to Australia and Consul General to Sydney, Queensland’s Treasurer and Minister of Trade and Investment, delegates of international trade and export development, executives from Air Canada and guests from across different business sectors.

After two years of pandemic disruption, travellers expressed they are ready to dust off their passports to connect to world renowned holiday destinations and business opportunities. This included people who have been isolated from friends and family who were waiting for travel convenience.

The return of non-stop, direct flights is also welcomed by businesses involved in trade and business relationships between Australia and Canada. The convenience of transiting and travel time for product shipments and people is necessary and important across many economic sectors such as international students and agriculture.

Air Canada’s re-start of regular service between Brisbane and Vancouver is expected to refuel and support the recovery of both countries’ international travel and trade sectors. The inaugural restoration flight will depart Vancouver on July 1st, as Canadians celebrate Canada Day and close ties with our Australian cousins.

Operating four times a week, Queenslanders will be able to connect onwards from Vancouver to destinations across Canada, the United States and beyond. In Australia, travellers will be able to book conjunction flights to major cities and popular Queensland tourist destinations, such as Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, the Whitsundays, and Cairns.

Canada-Australia business and people ties are of significance to our two economies. We also share several major industries and complement each other by operating opposing tourist seasons. The CACC and Air Canada will continue to work together to bring Canadians and Australians closer together.

The Canadian Australian Chamber of Commerce (CACC) is a non-profit, volunteer based organisation that aims to bring businesses together to facilitate a strong environment for economic trade and investment between Canada and Australia.
