More Europe, Asia & North America: Air Canada unveils summer schedule
(Air Canada)
Pax Global Media

Air Canada says customers have a range of options across Europe and Asia this summer, along with a choice of 120 destinations in North America, to fulfill their summer travel plans. 

Alongside new and enhanced international routes to Singapore, Madrid, Stockholm, Osaka and Seoul, the carrier's summer 2024 international capacity is growing by 30 per cent into Asia-Pacific and 25 per cent to key leisure destinations in Southern Europe compared to last Summer.

Air Canada says it continues to see strong demand for southern European destinations, and have increased capacity to countries such as Italy, Greece and especially Spain for this summer. 

The airline is focused on expanding its Pacific hub in Vancouver and has launched service to Singapore earlier this month, as well as increasing service to Hong Kong and Japan. 

"With continued high demand for visiting friends, relatives and leisure travel, our increased services to key destinations give customers more options than ever before," said Mark Galardo, executive vice president, revenue and network planning.

120 destinations this summer

"Within North America, Air Canada's domestic and trans-border network will grow to 120 destinations this summer, with the addition of Tulum, Mexico and Charleston, South Carolina, and be further strengthened by our joint business agreement with United Airlines," shared Galardo. 

Taken together, the national carrier says its domestic, trans-border and international schedules, alongside its airline and intermodal partnerships, create a global network unrivalled among Canadian carriers. 

"We have continued to build scale at our Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver hubs, each offering convenient and easy connections and such amenities as our Maple Leaf Lounges and Signature Suites in Toronto and Vancouver for our premium customers," added Galardo.

"The most non-stop service"

According to Air Canada, its Atlantic schedule will provide the most non-stop service between Canada and Europe of any carrier. 

From Montreal and Toronto, Air Canada is launching new non-stop routes to Stockholm, and will increase frequencies to Rome and Athens. 

From Montreal, the carrier will also launch year-round service to Madrid, increase flights to Paris to up to three-times daily during the summer peak, and restore service to Lyon. 

From Toronto, service will increase to Copenhagen and will commence Edinburgh and Brussels earlier in the season.

Across the Pacific, Air Canada says it will continue to build its Vancouver hub as the gateway to the Pacific.  

The carrier recently started year-round service to Singapore from Vancouver, and will increase capacity to Hong Kong, Osaka and Seoul. 

On the East Coast, the airline will start seasonal service from Toronto to Osaka and increase capacity to Tokyo, while from Montreal, Air Canada will begin seasonal service to Seoul, complementing enhanced capacity to Tokyo.

In North America, new routes will be offered from Toronto and Montreal to Tulum, from Toronto to Charleston, and from Montreal to St. Louis, Austin and New Orleans. 

Within Canada, Ottawa-Calgary and Halifax-Vancouver flights will resume, and there will be frequency or capacity increases, including between Toronto and Saskatoon, Regina, Victoria, Sydney and Gander, as well as between Montreal and Regina, Saskatoon, Victoria, Edmonton, Moncton, Fredericton and Deer Lake.
