Amidst Osaka’s surging popularity and the ramp-up to the Osaka Expo 2025, Air Canada has unveiled a new seasonal, direct service between Toronto and Osaka. Flights between Pearson International Airport and Kansai International Airport will run 3 times a week from June 17 to October 25, 2024, onboard the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.  Paired with increased frequency on their popular Vancouver-Osaka flight, this will more than double Air Canada’s capacity to Osaka, compared to the previous summer.

Japan continues to be an expanding market for the airline, which has steadily increased both their capacity and number of direct routes to accommodate the demand.  During peak summer season this year, Air Canada will offer over 12,000 seats a week between Canada and Japan, resulting in an overall capacity increase of approximately 20% compared with last summer. 

Air Canada currently runs direct flights between

Toronto-Osaka (KIX) *Seasonal
Toronto-Tokyo (HND)
Toronto-Tokyo (NRT)
Montreal-Tokyo (NRT)
Vancouver-Osaka (KIX) *Seasonal
Vancouver-Tokyo (NRT)

Thanks to their continual growth and development, Japan is now more accessible than ever for Canadian tourists, opening a direct gateway for visitors to experience the land of the rising sun for themselves. 

A world apart from Tokyo, Osaka is a vibrant city best known for its food, fun and nightlife.  A convenient 30-minute train ride from Kansai International Airport, it is a gateway not only to the Kansai region but to the rest of Western Japan, with convenient access to the many attractions in KyotoNaraHiroshimaFukuokaNagasaki and beyond.
