EVERYTHING YOU DREAMED OF.
Welcome to a new flying experience onboard Air Canada’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplane.
Craig Landry, Vice President- Marketing, welcomes you aboard Air Canada's first 787. And to tell you a little bit more about the journey, we'd like to take you a behind the scenes.
As one of the First Officer's onboard Air Canada's 787 Dreamliner, Marc- Antoine Plourde was truly born to fly.
Ben Smith, Executive V.P. and CCO at Air Canada talks about the importance of acquiring the 787 Dreamliner and its role in changing the way we fly.
We unveil the importance of Canada's role in a plane made by the world as we visit Messier-Bugatti-Dowty to see how they construct the 787's landing gear.
Louise McKenven, Senior Director, Product Design & Brand Management, Marketing at Air Canada talks about the special touches Air Canada has given to the 787, and how they will positively impact customers onboard.
Blake Emery, Director, Differentiation Strategy from Boeing reminds us of how truly magical it is to fly - and how the 787 Dreamliner lets us find that magic again.
Glenn Johnson, Director of Advanced Design Group at B/E Aerospace walks us through why Air Canada's 787 International Business Class pods are some of the most advanced passenger aircraft seats flying today.
Chief Operating Officer Klaus Goersch shows us around Air Canada's Operation Control Centre and explains why the 787 Dreamliner will allow us to fly routes we haven't been able to fly before.
We know you expect the best seats in the sky. Which is why Air Canada’s new International Business Class cabin includes Executive Pods with an adjustable cushion system that can be extended to an 80-inch, fully lie-flat bed. To top it off, the headrest includes massage functions that are completely unique for an airline to offer in Business Class.
Our 18-inch entertainment screens will be the largest available in business class on any North American carrier. Each seat will also contain its own touch handset, universal power port, USB outlet and a large retractable tray table. Business Class passengers can also look forward to the debut of Lavazza espressos and cappuccinos freshly brewed onboard, before pampering themselves with Canadian-made Escents Aromatherapy products.
A total of 20 lie-flat seats in a 1-2-1 configuration will guarantee direct aisle access and window views.
The latest generation of inflight entertainment includes intuitive touch screen navigation on bigger enhanced definition screens (18 inches in business class, but we don’t want to brag). You’ll be able to see what’s on the menu, shop, and converse with your friends onboard using seat-to-seat chat. We are also proud to be the first airline to offer an accessible solution for our visually impaired passengers.
With more than 600 hours of entertainment at your fingertips, including (and not limited to) the latest Hollywood and independent movies, TV series, music albums, audiobooks and podcasts, you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight.
Stay in the know with an interactive map, as well as key inflight information available at your seat. While you’re there, catch up on the best places to dine and must-sees at your destination with our enRoute City Guides.
With 30% bigger windows, you’ll feel like you have a window seat, no matter where you’re sitting. An electrochromic dimming system will allow you to control the amount of natural light that enters the cabin with the touch of a button.
Bigger overhead bins mean you don’t have to sacrifice leg room for carry-on luggage.
Eight-foot vaulted ceilings and vertical sidewalls make for a roomier, more comfortable cabin experience.
Full spectrum LED lighting will help your body adjust as you cross time zones.
The cabin altitude onboard the 787 is set at a level 2,000 feet lower than other aircraft. Lower altitude means better oxygen absorption, resulting in fewer headaches, less dizziness and less travel fatigue.
An increase in humidity combined with advances in the air filtration system allow your skin, eyes, lips and nose to arrive refreshed.
Breathe a little deeper knowing that the 787 powerfully filters the air inside the cabin and pulls in fresh air from the outside.
The layered details onboard Air Canada’s 787 have been designed to provide passengers with a contemporary, sophisticated experience. Warm, natural textures, fabrics and colours, Slate Grey with hints of Canadian red and celeste blue, make an altitude of 38,000 feet feel a little more like home.
The Economy cabin onboard the 787 has 210 slimline articulated seats in a 3-3-3 configuration, providing personal space consistent with the comfort of Air Canada’s current Economy cabin.
Every seat in economy is equipped with its own 9-inch enhanced definition intuitive, touch screen, with a USB outlet and universal power ports at arms reach.
The 787’s lightweight structure, aerodynamics, wing design and advances in engine technology significantly reduce emissions and fuel consumption, allowing you to not only fly efficiently, but fly farther.
A number of new technologies, including acoustically treated engine inlets and chevrons, are used to reduce noise for passengers onboard the aircraft, as well as community noise beyond airport boundaries.
Air Canada’s 787 is equipped with Smooth Ride Technology, which senses turbulence and makes automatic adjustments to the wing flaps to reduce it - so you can stay calm, and travel on.
The composite material used in the construction of the 787 makes up 50% of the primary structure of the plane. Because composite material is lighter, it enables several enhancements, including cabin pressurization at a lower altitude, higher cabin humidity and less fuel consumption.
Components of the 787 are built around the world; from Winnipeg, to Sweden and all the way to Nagoya. The parts are then shipped via Boeing’s massive Dreamlifter aircraft to Everett, WA for final assembly.
Watch the 787 come to life.
