Air Canada launches new Shannon Toronto & Dublin Montreal flights
15th September 2017 - 3:05pm
Air Canada has announced expanded seasonal services to and from Ireland with new non-stop flights from Shannon to Toronto and between Dublin and Montreal from June 2018. The flights will be operated using Air Canada’s newest single-aisle aircraft, the Boeing 737 Max 8 featuring a Business and Economy cabin configuration. “This marks a major expansion of our services in the Irish market and will provide a major boost for both leisure and business tourism from Canada to the island of Ireland,” said Bláithín O’Donnell (Sales Manager Ireland Air Canada).
“Canada is seen as a prime destination for Irish travellers both from a friend and family visitation perspective as well as a quality holiday destination. The recent signing of the CETA trade agreement and the increased bilateral visits by Canadian and Irish politicians, and government officials have also signalled a growth in business travel between the two countries. Air Canada services now connect more parts of Canada with more parts of Ireland than ever before, making us the number one carrier on the Ireland Canada market. We are also serving the growing numbers of travellers who choose to transit via Toronto, Montréal and Vancouver to destinations in other countries.”
“I would like to acknowledge the support of Dublin and Shannon airports, the Ireland Canada Business Association, the Embassy of Canada in Dublin, Tourism Ireland and the Irish Embassy in Canada, who have been a great support as we have expanded our services.”
