Air Canada has announced the launch of a new nonstop service between Montreal and Tokyo, which will commence on June 1, 2018. There will be daily services during the summer and three weekly flights in the winter. The flights will be operated using a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
“Air Canada is continuing its global expansion by strategically building its Montreal hub, and we are thrilled to announce the launch of non-stop flights to Tokyo, Montreal’s first scheduled link to Japan complementing our existing Tokyo flights from Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary,” said Calin Rovinescu, President & CEO of Air Canada.
Yves Lalumière, President & CEO, Tourisme Montréal, said, “This important addition builds on the new flights between China and Montreal operating during the last two years. We believe that the impact on Montreal tourism will be highly strategic and showcase Montreal’s vitality, while giving us access to Japan and other Asian and oceanic destinations.”
In the first eight months of 2017, Air Canada has launched seven new services from Montreal to Shanghai, Marseille, Dallas, Washington DC, Reykjavik, Tel Aviv and Algiers. The airlines will introduce its eighth flight to Lima later this year.
