    Here is some clarification regarding Air Canada’s new YYC-NRT service, using refurbished B767-300ER aircraft.

    Flights actually operate VIA Calgary and neither originate nor terminate there.

    The exact schedule is:

    AC-009 dep YYZ 0800, arr YYC 1010, dep YYC 1220 arr NRT 1400+1

    Return flights operate:

    AC-010 dep NRT 1600, arr YYC 1045, dep YYC 1230 arr YYZ 1808.

    Flights dep YYZ & YYC on TUE THU SAT and dep NRT on WED FRI SUN.

    Both AC-009/AC-010 operate as domestic flights between YYZ and YYC.

    Passengers departing YYZ for NRT on AC-009 cannot access duty free shopping in YYZ.

    ALL passengers arriving YYC on AC-010 must clear customs and immigration there.

    An additional observation of the price structure shows that passengers travelling from YEG (Edmonton) to Tokyo pay at least $100 more per round trip to travel via YYC than YVR.

    There are other even more significant costs to this routing via YYC.

    A round trip YYZ-NRT-(YVR)-YEG-YYZ which we are planning for next year will actually cost about $500 more each if we connect via YYC instead of YVR!
