Have you always dreamed of seeing the sun shine at midnight on Midsommar in Sweden? It will be easier to get there from Montreal and Toronto in the summer of 2024.
Air Canada recently opened seat reservations for non-stop flights between Montreal and Stockholm and Toronto and Stockholm. There will be three weekly flights from Montreal and two weekly flights from Toronto from June 12, 2024.
All these flights will be operated with Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft.
It has also been announced that service between Toronto and Copenhagen will be increased, offering daily flights from May 1 to October 31, 2024. The same goes for the Montreal-Copenhagen service, which will start earlier from May 2, 2024, with frequency increased to five flights a week from June onwards.
Flight times to Stockholm
Here are Air Canada’s schedules for non-stop service from Montreal and Toronto to Stockholm:
|AC802||Montreal YUL at 6:00 p.m.||Stockholm ARN at 7:05 a.m. +1||Tuesday, Friday, Sunday||June 14, 2024|
|AC803||Stockholm ARN at 12:15 p.m.||Montreal YUL at 2:05 p.m.||Monday, Wednesday, Saturday||June 15, 2024|
|AC902||Toronto YYZ at 8:30 p.m.||Stockholm ARN at 10:05 a.m. +1||Wednesday, Saturday||June 12, 2024|
|AC903||Stockholm ARN at 12:15 p.m.||Toronto YYZ at 2:35 p.m.||Thursday, Sunday||June 13, 2024|
This timetable has been designed to improve connections between North America and Scandinavia, with Montreal-Trudeau and Toronto-Pearson airports as Air Canada hubs.
Examples with Aeroplan points and cash
At the time of writing, it’s possible to get a round trip Montreal-Stockholm flight from June 18 to 29, 2024 for as little as 82,600 Aeroplan points and $123 in fees and taxes in standard economy class, or 169,000 Aeroplan points and $123 in fees and taxes in business class to take advantage of a fully reclining seat.
The same itinerary would cost you $1,228 in standard economy and $5,653 in business class.
Points and cash prizes are very similar for the non-stop Toronto-Stockholm service with an itinerary from June 19 to 30, 2024.
Combined with the increased service for the Montreal-Copenhagen flight launched in June 2023 and the year-round Toronto-Copenhagen flight, this gives Air Canada travellers more opportunities to visit Scandinavia, whether with flights paid for with cash or Aeroplan points. It also comes just in time after Scandinavian Airlines announced its intention to leave Star Alliance in the near future.
