Air Canada begins service to fourth new international destination
from Toronto this year with Copenhagen launch
Route opens connections for customers and cargo flying to Scandinavia
June 24, 2010

Air Canada today is launching non-stop service between Toronto and Copenhagen. It is the fourth new European city to be served from Air Canada's Toronto hub this year as the carrier expands its international flying to offer customers a wider choice of routes and destinations.

'Air Canada is building its Toronto hub and this year we have launched long-haul service to four new, major European destinations. The addition of Copenhagen is important strategically as passengers and cargo will be able to conveniently connect with our Star Alliance partner Scandinavian Airlines to reach such cities as Oslo, Helsinki, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Warsaw. For connecting customers travelling between Copenhagen and U.S. cities, this new route will offer the fastest elapsed travel time,' said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. 'Toronto's geographic position and the consolidation of our operations under one roof, where customers enjoy easy in-transit customs clearance and amenities such as our Maple Leaf Lounges, are enabling us to establish Lester B. Pearson International Airport as a major North American and global hub for the Star Alliance. Earlier this month, AirCanada launched new non-stop service to Athens and Barcelona from Toronto and to Brussels, via Montreal. At the same time, in conjunction with our international growth we have expanded our transborder network out of Toronto with seven new U.S. routes this spring.'

'We're once again pleased to see Air Canada's continued growth and their dedication to their Toronto hub,' said Pamela Griffith-Jones, Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer for the GTAA. 'Having this link to Copenhagen enhances the already excellent roster of international destinations available from Toronto.'

Air Canada will begin non-stop flights five days a week between Toronto and Copenhagen on June 24, 2010. The only non-stop service to Scandinavia from Canada will be operated with a 211-seat Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft featuring 24 lie flat bed suites in Executive First and a personal digital in-flight video system, a USB port and a power plug available at every seat throughout the aircraft. Flights will be timed to conveniently connect with Star Alliance partner Scandinavian Airlines, which offers more than 120 flights per day from Copenhagen to 52 destinations.
