A Better Way to the USA, Eh?

Sweeten the deal on flights with Air Canada.


Got your sights set on a destination across the Pacific? Unless you plan on channelling your inner seafaring wanderer or have a spare 7-10 days to cruise across the great blue expanse, chances are you’re looking at a flight.

Now, we know flying 12+ hours across the world's biggest ocean isn’t for everyone. This is why it is so important to choose an airline you can trust (and one that will make the journey a little bit more comfortable). Enter the maple-loving folk at Air Canada.

Whether you plan on soaking up the sun along the USA’s West Coast, heading east for a bite out of the Big Apple, enjoying a spot of skiing and sightseeing in Canada or embarking on a cruise through Alaska and beyond, Air Canada is ready to shuttle you across the great blue with weekly direct flights from Sydney and Brisbane.

Why Fly Air Canada?

Contrary to popular belief, Air Canada services more destinations than just, well, Canada. Jumping aboard one of their Dreamliners from Brisbane and Sydney will have you landing in Vancouver, which then connects you to more than 100 North American destinations. Pretty neat, eh?

But wait, that’s not even the best bit.

If you’ve ever flown into LAX, you’d be well acquainted with the pure joy that is U.S. Customs (yes, that is sarcasm). What was once considered a right of passage when arriving in The States is now a massive inconvenience, with travellers stuck in queues for hours on end.

Flying with Air Canada means you can avoid this hullabaloo altogether as you pre-clear U.S. Customs and Immigration at Vancouver Airport. Not only will this save you a bonkers amount of time, but you can feel like an absolute VIP as you sashay out of that airport in America without batting an eyelid.

Your bags will also be checked throughout the entire journey, meaning you don’t have to stress about them as you transfer through Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto or Calgary Airports. In other words, spend less worrying about customs and your bags and more time sampling every flavour Timbit at Tim Hortons (birthday cake is our fave, but we’ll let you be the judge).

What’s it like flying with Air Canada?

You know how Canadians are known for being really nice? Well, it makes sense that their national airline is exactly the same - super duper nice. Plus, their fleet is one of the most environmentally friendly in the world.

Let’s start with the planes. From Australia, you’ll be flying on one of their Dreamliners all the way to Canada and the US East Coast. These planes offer a superior long-haul experience, with better air filtration, reduced engine noise, smooth ride technology and lower cabin altitude - all of which are meant to help reduce fatigue and jet lag.

Once in Canada, their wider fleet of 390 aircraft will connect you to other cities across North America and beyond, with hubs in Montreal, Toronto and Calgary. Air Canada is a member of Star Alliance, so if they can’t service your destination with one of their own fleet, you can rely on any of their trusted airline partners to get you where you need to be.

When booking a direct flight, you can choose from Economy, Premium Economy and Signature Class (Business Class). Up the pointy end, Signature Class offers a luxe trip across the Pacific with a fully flat bed and elevated menu.

Flying economy but like a lil extra room? Keep an eye out for their Preferred Seats, which offer up to 10cm more space between seats, more knee room and the chance to exit sooner once you arrive.

Entertainment-wise, take your pick from 420+ movies, 1000s of TV episodes and 130+ music albums. Get lost in the latest series on Apple TV, or pass the hours with a good book from Audible - all provided free during your flight.

Need to stay up-to-date with your socials or emails? No sweat. You can easily stay connected with Air Canada’s wifi across the Pacific.
