In an effort to increase the number of international routes it offers, Air Canada recently announced new routes to Europe and plans to restart a few existing routes to Japan this summer.
The Montreal-based airline intends to start operating again next summer on routes from Vancouver to Osaka and Tokyo Haneda. In April, it started operating once more to Tokyo Narita. The announcement follows Japan’s introduction of new border controls last fall that ease two years of pandemic restrictions by allowing access to all foreign nationals with proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test.
Beginning on June 1, 2023, Air Canada intends to introduce flights from Toronto to Brussels, Montreal to Toulouse, and Montreal to Copenhagen.
Flights to Tokyo Narita, Frankfurt, and Dubai will all see an increase in frequency, according to the airline, along with other current foreign routes in the Atlantic, Pacific, and South American regions.
In response to the rising demand for international travel, Air Canada has announced plans to increase its worldwide service offerings.
