Air Canada is continuing to expand its route network in Asia with the upcoming launch of non-stop seasonal flights from Toronto Pearson (YYZ) to Osaka (KIX).

Air Canada’s New Toronto–Osaka Route

As of June 17, 2024, Air Canada will once again be offering non-stop seasonal service from Toronto Pearson (YYZ) to Osaka (KIX). This route comes as the airline’s second to Osaka, as it also offers seasonal service from Vancouver (YVR).

Based on the preliminary schedule listing, this flight will be operated three times weekly, with the following planned schedule:

  • AC59 Toronto Pearson (YYZ) to Osaka (KIX), departing 2pm and arriving 5:35pm the following day
  • AC60 Osaka (KIX) to Toronto Pearson (YYZ), departing 7:05pm and arriving 7pm

The eastbound flight from Toronto is slated to run 14 hours 35 minutes, and it’s offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Meanwhile, the westbound flight from Osaka clocks in at 12 hours 55 minutes, and it’ll operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

The seasonal service is set to end on October 25, 2024.

Air Canada will fly the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner on this route, with economy, premium economy, and business class cabins available for booking.
