Air Canada announces the launch of several new destinations from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver: São Paulo, Auckland, Honolulu and Quito!
Brazil, New Zealand, Hawaii and Ecuador with Air Canada and Air Canada Rouge
It is always interesting to see new destinations being served from Canada! And in recent years, Air Canada has been busy unveiling more and more international services! Who would have imagined traveling directly from Montreal to Tokyo 5 years ago?
The company has made a change by no longer concentrating all its international flights on Toronto only.
Its growth is now also based on its other Canadian airports: Montreal (YUL), Vancouver (YYZ), and to a lesser extent Calgary (YYC). For example, here are the lines announced today:
This change is due in particular to the arrival in its fleet of economic aircraft such as the Dreamliner, which allows it to gradually move away from the notion of “hub” by connecting “secondary” cities…
…and the expansion of its leisure airline: Air Canada Rouge.
