Air Canada is Canada’s largest carrier. It has an extensive international (and domestic) route network and is part of Star Alliance. The airline just announced new flights to Stockholm and expanded capacity to Copenhagen.
This summer, Air Canada will offer 3x weekly seasonal flights from Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and 2x weekly from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN). Both routes will begin on June 12th using Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft with Signature Class (Business Class), Premium Economy, and Economy Class seats.
Capacity will also increase on flights to and from Copenhagen Airport (CPH). Service from Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) will begin on May 2nd with 3x weekly flights in May on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. These will increase to 5x weekly in June (on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays) and run through October 2024. Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) will see daily service commence on May 1st. These flights will also all be served using Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft with Signature Class (Business Class), Premium Economy, and Economy Class seats.
Mark Galardo, Executive Vice President, Revenue and Network Planning at Air Canada, said:
We continue our strategy of building international scale at our Toronto and Montreal global hubs and we are very pleased to deepen Air Canada’s longstanding presence in Northern Europe with the addition of flights to Stockholm. Toronto and Montreal are the third and fourth largest trans-Atlantic gateways, and we continue strengthening our hubs’ reach with our increased services to Scandinavia.
Toronto and Montreal have been strategically developed to facilitate convenient connections throughout Air Canada’s extensive North American network and, with non-stop Dreamliner flights to Stockholm, we offer customers choice and ease while traveling between North America and Sweden’s capital city for business development, tourism, or visiting friends and family. Together with our added capacity to Copenhagen, we will operate up to 17 weekly flights this summer from Toronto and Montreal to Stockholm and Copenhagen. We look forward to welcoming customers onboard our flights.”
Air Canada launched service to Scandinavia back in 2010. It plans to operate 100% of its peak summer 2019 transatlantic capacity next year due to the huge demand for international travel.
Anthony’s Take: Airlines are betting big on international travel for summer 2024. United, Delta, and American have all released robust schedules and we’ll continue to see others announce flights in the near term.
