Air Canada Adding 6 Destinations To Expanding International Network
AC has announced 6 new destinations to its international network, including year-round Boeing 787-9 service between YYZ and BOM and between YVR and TPE.
YUL-MRS, YVR-NGO, YYZ-BER and YUL-ALG are the other new routes. The new services will launch for the summer 2017 season, with the YUL-ALG and the YVR-TPE routes subject to government approvals.
"Air Canada is pleased to offer customers these new non-stop routes to exciting destinations around the world. While extending our global reach, they also represent a further deepening of our already substantial international network," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines.
"Toronto-Mumbai is our 3rd route between Canada and India starting with the launch of Toronto-Delhi service last fall, and Nagoya will be our 4th airport in Japan. With these new services, we will now operate 21 routes between Canada and Asia, including the Middle East. Berlin and Marseille will bring the number of European routes we serve to 44 next summer, including 4 cities in France. Algiers will be our 2nd destination in Africa, which makes Air Canada one of only a small number of global carriers flying to all 6 inhabited continents," said Smith.
AC will become the only carrier to offer non-stop service between Canada and Mumbai and the only Canadian carrier to operate non-stop service to Taipei. These routes will operate year-round.
The new seasonal routes to Berlin and Nagoya will be the only non-stop services between these cities and Canada. The service to Algiers will be the only non-stop flight by a Canadian carrier between Montreal and the North African city and the Marseille service will be the only non-stop flight operated by a network carrier between Marseille and North America. All will be operated with an AC Rouge Boeing 767-300ER.
All flights are available for sale immediately, except for Vancouver-Taipei and Montreal-Algiers which will be available for sale in the near future pending government approvals.
