  • China Eastern Airlines has enhanced its presence in North America with the introduction of service to a second Canadian city. On 25 June the airline introduced thrice-weekly flights on the 11,440-kilometre sector between Shanghai Pudong (PVG) and Toronto Pearson (YYZ) using its A340-600s. The route is already operated daily by Air Canada. China Eastern’s other Canadian route is a double-daily service from Shanghai to Vancouver. In addition, it operates non-stop flights from Shanghai to Honolulu, Los Angeles, New York JFK and San Francisco.
