Air Canada will restart flights from London Heathrow to Halifax, Nova Scotia from Sunday 1 May 2022.
The route has been suspended for some time. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic it had been suspended due to the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.
Air Canada will continue to serve the route with Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. This operates in a two class, economy and premium economy, configuration.
The inbound flight from Halifax, AC868, will operate as a day flight, departing at 11:00 and arriving at Heathrow at 21:00.
The aircraft will stay at Heathrow overnight before leaving at 11:05 under flight AC869.
