MONTREAL — The City of Lights will be even easier for Canadians to access next summer thanks to Air Canada’s increased service from both Montreal and Toronto.
Between July 2 and Aug. 28, 2020, the airline will operate three additional flights per week from Montreal, and four additional flights from Toronto to Paris-Charles De Gaulle Airport.
The ramped up service will bring Air Canada’s total nonstop flights per week to France from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to 54 in summer 2020.
“Air Canada already offers the most flights and widest choice of destinations for travel between Canada and France and we are increasing our services to build on our market leading position,” said Mark Galardo, Vice President of Network Planning at Air Canada. “With Eastern Canada an increasingly popular destination for tourists, these additional Paris flights will provide more growth opportunities for Canada’s dynamic tourism sector. These added flights will also allow customers additional flexibility of choosing their preferred departure time from the City of Lights, as Air Canada will introduce an early evening departure from Paris to both Montreal and Toronto.”
From Montreal, the third daily flight will operate Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday between July 2 and Aug. 27, 2020. From Toronto, Air Canada will offer a second daily flight on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday between July 3 and Aug. 28, 2020.
The additional flights will be operated with Air Canada’s Airbus A330-300 fleet featuring Signature Class, Premium Economy and Economy cabins.
