Canada: Air Canada Expanding Global Reach

Air Canada, Canada’s leading airline, is growing its roster of non-stop flights to top destinations around the world.

It launched its new three-times-a-week, non-stop service between Toronto Pearson and Rio de Janeiro - Galeão International Airport in Brazil with the departure of flight AC098 on December 11th.

"Air Canada is very pleased to become the only carrier operating non-stop flights between Canada and the celebrated city of Rio de Janeiro. The service complements our Toronto-Sao Paulo route, meaning Air Canada now offers two destinations in Brazil. The new route also reinforces our market-leading position as the only carrier flying non-stop between Canada and South America," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada.

"This service offers some of the quickest elapsed travel times from many U.S. northeast cities and is timed for convenient connections to our network over our Toronto Pearson global hub, including to Tokyo-Haneda, Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai, and further expands Air Canada's global reach from Toronto,” he explained.

In addition, Air Canada rouge has added direct seasonal service from Toronto, Ontario to Honolulu, Hawaii and from Vancouver, British Columbia to Palm Springs, California.

The new seasonal service from Toronto to Honolulu is Canada’s only non-stop service between the two destinations. It operates twice weekly on A Boeing 767-300 aircraft with 280 seats.

The new non-stop seasonal service between Vancouver and sunny Palm Springs operates up to six times weekly on an Airbus A319 aircraft with 136 seats. The service is timed to connect conveniently across Air Canada's extensive domestic network within British Columbia and Alberta, and across Canada
