Air Canada is launching its new non-stop service between Toronto and Copenhagen today. Flights will operate 5 days per week (every day except Tuesday and Wednesday) year round. It is the fourth new European city to be served from Air Canada’s Toronto hub this year as the carrier expands its international flying.
“Air Canada is building its Toronto hub and this year we have launched long-haul service to four new, major European destinations. The addition of Copenhagen is important strategically as passengers and cargo will be able to conveniently connect with our Star Alliance partner Scandinavian Airlines to reach such cities as Oslo, Helsinki, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Warsaw,” said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.
“Earlier this month, Air Canada launched new non-stop service to Athens and Barcelona from Toronto and to Brussels, via Montreal. At the same time, in conjunction with our international growth we have expanded our transborder network out of Toronto with seven new U.S. routes this spring,” added Smith.
The only non-stop service to Scandinavia from Canada will be operated with a 211 seat Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft featuring 24 lie flat bed suites in Executive First.
