Travellers from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) will be able to fly directly to John Wayne Orange County Airport in Orange County Airport (SNA) starting this spring. 

On March 3, Air Canada announced the launch of a daily, non-stop service connecting Vancouver to Orange County beginning on June 15, 2020. However, this date is subject to final airport authority approvals. 

The airline notes that special introductory fares for the new direction option will start as low as $187 CDN one-way, all in. 

The John Wayne Orange County Airport in Orange County Airport (SNA) is the closest airport in California to the Disneyland Resort, which is 16 miles away. Previously, the only direct flight from Vancouver to California was to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which is located 34 miles away.

"We are very pleased to announce new daily, year-round flights from Vancouver to Orange County as we strategically expand our transborder network into the populous greater Los Angeles area," said Mark Galardo, vice-president of network planning and alliances at Air Canada.

"In addition to offering direct flights to the iconic tourism, sports and entertainment attractions that Orange County is known for, our new flights will also conveniently link the increasing start-up, tech and innovator businesses that both Vancouver and southern California are home to. Air Canada's Orange County flights will also offer a wide array of connections across Canada and to Australia and India via our YVR hub."

The Air Canada Airbus A319 aircraft offers a choice of two cabins configured with 14 Business Class and 106 Economy seats all featuring personal in-flight entertainment, as well as Wi-Fi onboard. All Air Canada flights provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption and, for eligible customers, access to priority services, Maple Leaf Lounges and other benefits.

In response to the announcement, Vancouver International Airport stated that it was, "thrilled about Air Canada's decision to expand their network with more options to the U.S."

"Whether you’re off to Disneyland with your family, surfing and relaxing oceanside on one of many incredible beaches, road tripping up the Cali coast with a friend or just visiting the renowned SoCal area, this new non-stop route will get you as close as possible to the action."
