Air Canada announced the launch of new daily, non-stop service between Toronto and Tokyo’s Haneda Airport on Tuesday.  The service currently operates using Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, but will switch to 787 Dreamliners in mid-July.

From Toronto, flights depart at 1:00 p.m. and arrive in Tokyo at 2:55 p.m. the following day.  Flights from Tokyo depart at 5:40 p.m. and arrive in Toronto at 4:40 p.m.

The new route is Air Canada’s third service to Tokyo, after its Toronto-Tokyo Narita, Calgary-Tokyo Narita, and Vancouver-Tokyo Narita service.  When the carrier introduces its 787 on the new Toronto-Tokyo Haneda route later this month, it will mark the introduction of the Dreamliner into the carrier’s fleet.

Air Canada’s Dreamliners are equipped with 20 pod-like seats in business class, 21 seats in premium economy, and 210 seats in economy.  Seats in business class are fully lie-flat and arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration, each with direct-aisle access, a bed length of 80”, and personal 18” touchscreen monitors.
