LONDON – Air Canada becomes the latest North American carrier to outline its Summer 2023 expansion plans, with multiple new services announced.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, here is what Mark Galardo, the Senior VP of Network Planning & Revenue Management at Air Canada, had to say:

Executive Comments…

“We continue to pursue our disciplined approach of expanding our global network in response to anticipated demand. We are especially pleased to be adding three new strategic routes to Europe, resuming important services to Japan, and increasing frequencies to key international destinations for summer 2023”.

“Toronto-Brussels will complement our current services from Montreal while further expanding Air Canada’s reach to Europe and beyond through our Star Alliance partner Brussels Airlines, which offers easy connections throughout Europe and Africa.”

“Meanwhile, our Montreal-Toulouse route not only links two global aerospace centers, but it is also the only year-round service between North America and southwestern France.”

“We are also increasing our presence in Scandinavia with the addition of summer service from Montreal to Copenhagen, a Star Alliance hub that offers connections throughout Northern Europe while enabling customers on both sides of the Atlantic to visit and explore each other’s countries conveniently.”

“Our additional flights to major destinations in Europe, the Middle East, South America, South Pacific, and Asia, including London Heathrow, Frankfurt, and Tokyo/Haneda, will support local tourism and hospitality sectors as customers in all six continents reconnect, visit and explore.”

“Customers can start planning ahead and book with confidence. We look forward to welcoming you onboard”.
