Air Canada to launch Silicon Valley-Vancouver service


VANCOUVER, Canada – Air Canada will launch nonstop service between Mineta San José International Airport (SJC) and Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

Twice-daily service on the Silicon Valley-Vancouver route will be operated by Bombardier CRJ-705 aircraft which seats up to 75 passengers, including 10 business class seats.

Vancouver is a pre-clearance airport for Air Canada flights to the U.S. Travelers clear U.S. Customs and Border Protection before leaving Vancouver, eliminating the need to do so when arriving to SJC.
