Air Canada Launches International Flights From Montreal to Toulouse and Copenhagen
Air Canada is today celebrating the launch of inaugural service from Montreal to both Toulouse and Copenhagen. Toulouse becomes the carrier’s fourth destination in France and is now the only year-round service between North America and southwestern France.
On Friday (June 2, 2023), Air Canada announced the launch of inaugural services from their Montreal (YUL) hub to both Toulouse and Copenhagen. Toulouse becomes the carrier’s fourth destination in France and marks the only year-round service between North America and Southwestern France. The new seasonal Montreal-Copenhagen route complements Air Canada’s existing year-round service between Toronto and the Danish capital. Both routes will operate five times weekly, with Toulouse service operated with an Airbus A330-300 and Copenhagen service with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
In Friday’s announcement, Air Canada’s EVP – Revenue and Network Planning, Mark Galardo, said,
“We are very excited to have launched our long-awaited, year-round new flights between our Montreal global hub to the French-speaking world, and Toulouse! Not only are we connecting two significant business cities in the international aerospace industry, we are establishing another convenient link to France, and providing travellers from Toulouse connections to a wide variety of destinations via our Montreal hub.
“We are thrilled to inaugurate our second route from Canada to Copenhagen, offering travellers from both sides of the Atlantic more choices to visit and explore each other's countries. Via Copenhagen, a Star Alliance hub, our customers will be able to easily connect to the larger Scandinavian market. These two exciting routes are a further sign of our commitment to Montreal as an important hub in Air Canada's global network growth.”
Airport operator ADM’s CEO, Phillipe Rainville, added,
“ADM Aéroports de Montréal welcomes the addition of Copenhagen and Toulouse as Air Canada's latest routes. Service to these two destinations will bolster Montréal's flight offering and reinforce YUL's status as a major international hub for air traffic. Both of these cities are important destinations. Copenhagen is a significant gateway to Nordic countries and is home to the beautiful architectural landmarks of the Danish capital for visitors to enjoy. The addition of Toulouse, world capital of aeronautics, will undoubtedly strengthen commercial relationships. This comes as fantastic news for our own aeronautics industry operating out of the YMX International Aerocity of Mirabel, a true beacon of knowledge and expertise for the province of Québec.”
