Air Canada launches first of its 25 new nonstop routes of Summer 2018

Air Canada today inaugurates non-stop service between Toronto and Omaha, the first of 25 new year-round and seasonal routes the carrier is launching this summer. The new nonstop routes are consistent with company growth plans and will extend Air Canada’s network with new destinations and city pairings in Canada, the U.S. and internationally to give customers greater choice and convenience when they travel.

“Air Canada is well established as a leading global carrier now serving 222 destinations on six continents. These route additions broaden and deepen our already expansive network by adding new destinations and city pairings. In recent years, Air Canada has been profitably adding capacity and building its network so that today we now operate 430 routes, providing customers more choice and travel options aboard the Best Airline in North America, as rated by the respected Skytrax global survey,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.

The 25 new routes will launch between May 1 and July 2, 2018 and include international services such as Vancouver to Paris and Zurich, Toronto to Buenos Aries and Shannon, and Montreal to Tokyo-Narita and Bucharest. The routes include a combination of Air Canada mainline, Air Canada Rouge and Air Canada Express services. Flights are timed to connect conveniently with Air Canada’s global network at major hubs, provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption, Star Alliance reciprocal benefits, and for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access where available, priority boarding and other benefits.
