The thrice-weekly service is China's sole direct flight to Canada, a company official said.

China Southern operates a Boeing 777-200ER on the route.

"There are definite plans to quickly ramp up the number of services per week, as bookings are coming in fast. But [the company] is still undecided on the number of additional services it will introduce on the route," said the official.
