Canada’s largest airline has officially released their summer schedule on Friday, and although it’s reduced, there are still many flights available to domestic and international destinations.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Air Canada is flying to only 97 destinations this summer season, down from 220 last year.
Air Canada will operate from its major hubs to destinations around the world.
This includes routes from Toronto to Frankfurt, London, Zurich, Tokyo and Tel Aviv, routes from Montreal to Frankfurt, London, Paris and Brussels and flights from Vancouver to London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Seoul.
In June, service will expand even further to include flights between Montreal and Athens, Rome and Geneva along with ones between Toronto and Munich, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Rome, and Athens.
There could also potentially be flights from Vancouver to Shanghai in the near future, but that will be subject to government approval.
“We are accordingly gradually opening for sale flights for the summer and beyond as we rebuild our network,” said Lucie Guillemette, executive VP and chief commercial officer with Air Canada in a release.
As of Friday, May 22nd, Air Canada will resume service to the U.S. Despite this announcement, the border between Canada and the U.S. remains closed to all non-essential travellers until at least June 21st.
