A busy summer season ahead for Air Canada, with 11 new international services

MONTREAL — Air Canada has gotten a jumpstart on summer with the launch of two new international routes from Vancouver to Nagoya and Frankfurt. Both launching today, the Frankfurt route flies daily, seasonal, while Nagoya flies four times weekly, also seasonal.

The airline’s summer season will get even busier when it introduces additional international nonstop routes in the coming weeks. In total, Air Canada plans to introduce 11 new international routes this summer from Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

From Vancouver, in addition to Frankfurt and Nagoya, Air Canada will launch Taipei (daily, year-round) and London-Gatwick (three-weekly, seasonal), both on June 8.

From Toronto, new international routes include Berlin on June 3 (four-weekly, seasonal), Reykjavik on June 21 (four-weekly, seasonal), and Mumbai on July 1 (four-weekly, year-round).

From Montreal, Air Canada will launch nonstop flights to Marseille on June 9 (three-weekly, seasonal), Tel Aviv on June 22 (twice-weekly, seasonal), Reykjavik on June 23 (three-weekly, seasonal), and Algiers on July 1 (four-weekly, seasonal).

“Nothing says summer like winging off to an exciting foreign destination, and Air Canada is pleased to offer its customers more options than ever this year. Through our ongoing international expansion, we are adding 11 new routes touching three continents beginning this summer. This includes exciting destinations in Asia such as Mumbai, Taipei and Nagoya; new cities in Europe, including Berlin, Marseille and Reykjavik; and our second city in Africa, Algiers,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.

The 11 new international services will be operated either by Air Canada mainline, using Boeing 787-8/9 or Airbus A330-300 aircraft, or by Air Canada Rouge, flying Boeing 767-300ER or A319-100 aircraft.

Two routes, Vancouver-Taipei and Toronto-Mumbai, will continue to operate year-round while the others are available for the summer season. These international additions to Air Canada’s network follow on new transborder routes started this year from Vancouver to Boston, Denver and Dallas; from Toronto to Savannah, San Antonio, and Memphis and Montreal to Dallas; and, later this month, from Montreal to Washington Dulles.
