Air Canada launching new service to Europe for summer 2023

MONTREAL — Air Canada is expanding its international network for summer 2023, with the addition of new European services to Brussels, Toulouse and Copenhagen.

The airline is also resuming Asia services to Tokyo-Haneda and Osaka.

Here’s a more detailed look at the just-announced routes …

  • New Montreal-Toulouse, Montreal-Copenhagen, Toronto-Brussels
  • Resumes Vancouver-Osaka, Toronto-Tokyo/Haneda
  • Other services restored to Europe, South America, Middle East, Africa, Asia, and South Pacific

“We continue to pursue our disciplined approach of expanding our global network in response to anticipated demand. We are especially pleased to be adding three new strategic routes to Europe, resuming important services to Japan, and increasing frequencies to key international destinations for summer 2023,” says Mark Galardo, Air Canada’s Senior Vice President Network Planning and Revenue Management.

“Toronto-Brussels will complement our current services from Montreal, while further expanding Air Canada’s reach to Europe and beyond through our Star Alliance partner Brussels Airlines, which offers easy connections throughout Europe and Africa. Meanwhile, our Montreal-Toulouse route not only links two global aerospace centres, it is the only year-round service between North America and southwestern France.”

Galardo notes that Air Canada is also increasing its presence in Scandinavia with the addition of summer service from Montreal to Copenhagen, a Star Alliance hub that offers connections throughout Northern Europe.
