“As travel restrictions ease across the globe, we are committed to rebuild our international network and continue as a global carrier to connect Canada to the world, while also developing additional markets and targeting new opportunities. Canadians are eager to travel again, and we are ready to reunite customers with their families and friends. With vaccination rates globally increasing and our industry-leading CleanCare+ bio-safety protocols, Air Canada has your health and safety as its top priority,” said Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management at Air Canada.

“We are pleased to restart our non-stop service between Calgary and Frankfurt, a key European market for our customers in Western Canada.
