Air Canada will introduce its new three-class Boeing 787s on the Vancouver-Shanghai and Vancouver-Tokyo routes “over the 2014-2015 winter months”, says the Star Alliance carrier.

The aircraft type will begin its first dedicated service between Toronto and Tokyo's Haneda airport on 15 July - a new route for the Canadian carrier. The airline will also place the 787 on flights between Toronto and Tel Aviv later in the third quarter.

Air Canada received the first of 15 787-8s in Toronto on 18 May and will begin taking delivery of 22 larger 787-9s in mid-2015. The carrier plans to add all 37 787s to its fleet by 2019.
