Beginning June 16, Air Canada will operate three non-stop flights per week between Toronto and Shanghai, China's largest city. These flights will complement Air Canada's Toronto to Beijing non-stop service, launched in June 2005, and its daily non-stop flights to both Shanghai and Beijing from Vancouver. Air Canada also operates twice daily flights to Hong Kong, including non-stop service from Toronto.

Air Canada is the only carrier offering non-stop service between the largest commercial cities of Canada and China. With a flight time of 14 hours 45 minutes westbound and 13 hours 40 minutes eastbound, Air Canada's new Toronto-Shanghai service saves passengers more than three hours in each direction compared to the Vancouver routing.

Air Canada will operate the new route using 286-seat A340-300 aircraft. With a 10:15 departure from Toronto on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, flights will arrive in Shanghai at 13:00 the next day. Eastbound flights, AC072, leave Shanghai at 14:45 on Monday, Thursday and Saturday and arrive in Toronto at 16:25 the same day.
