With the arrival of two flights in Europe today, Air Canada has inaugurated two strategic non-stop routes from its Montreal global hub to Europe.
Air Canada’s non-stop, year-round service to Toulouse is the airline’s fourth destination in France and marks the only year-round service between North America and southwestern France, connecting two global aerospace centres, as well as two dynamic francophone cities.
Additionally, Air Canada’s seasonal services from Montreal to Copenhagen complement its year-round services to the Danish capital from Toronto.
“We are very excited to have launched our long-awaited, year-round new flights between our Montreal global hub to the French-speaking world, and Toulouse!,” said Mark Galardo, Executive Vice President, Revenue and Network Planning.
“Not only are we connecting two significant business cities in the international aerospace industry, we are establishing another convenient link to France, and providing travellers from Toulouse connections to a wide variety of destinations via our Montreal hub.
“We are thrilled to inaugurate our second route from Canada to Copenhagen, offering travellers from both sides of the Atlantic more choices to visit and explore each other’s countries.
“Via Copenhagen, a Star Alliance hub, our customers will be able to easily connect to the larger Scandinavian market.
“These two exciting routes are a further sign of our commitment to Montreal as an important hub in Air Canada’s global network growth”.
“ADM Aéroports de Montréal welcomes the addition of Copenhagen and Toulouse as Air Canada’s latest routes. Service to these two destinations will bolster Montréal’s flight offering and reinforce YUL’s status as a major international hub for air traffic,” ADM CEO Philippe Rainville said.
“Both of these cities are important destinations. Copenhagen is a significant gateway to Nordic countries and is home to the beautiful architectural landmarks of the Danish capital for visitors to enjoy.
“The addition of Toulouse, world capital of aeronautics, will undoubtedly strengthen commercial relationships.
“This comes as fantastic news for our own aeronautics industry operating out of the YMX International Aerocity of Mirabel, a true beacon of knowledge and expertise for the province of Québec.”
