Air Canada announced it will introduce year-round mainline service to Amsterdam from Toronto beginning in June 2015 as part of the continuing expansion of its international network.
The year-round service between Toronto-Pearson and Amsterdam will be operated with a 211-seat, Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with 24 International Business Class pods, featuring fully lie-flat seats.
Flights begin June 4, 2015, and will operate up to six times weekly.
Additions to the summer network also include new Air Canada rouge seasonal service from Montreal to Venice and between Vancouver and Osaka.
“Air Canada will continue its international expansion drive next summer, led by the addition of Amsterdam to its mainline global network. Apart from being a popular tourist destination, Amsterdam is also a key business market with longstanding links to Canada. Air Canada is the only Canadian carrier to offer the route year-round and it will complement our existing service to Brussels, giving customers easier access to the Benelux region,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada.
“In addition to Amsterdam, for summer 2015 we will launch new double-daily, non-stop service to Paris from both Toronto and Montreal, and new Air Canada rouge service between Vancouver and Osaka and between Montreal and Venice. It will also offer increased weekly Air Canada rouge frequencies to such popular destinations as Barcelona and Athens.”
