Air Canada expanding its service to Copenhagen
Air Canada wants to fly even more Danish travellers to international destinations via Toronto. From there, passengers have a vast choice of flights to US, Latin American and Caribbean destinations, for example.
There is a difference between winter and summer. This is true for air traffic, as well – the summer season normally being the busier period. Air Canada offers daily flights from Copenhagen to Toronto during the busy summer season, while flights have traditionally been cut down in winter.
That is about to change, however. Come next winter, Star Alliance airline Air Canada will increase its flights from Copenhagen from three to four a week.
“Our busy business travellers have long been requesting a Monday departure from CPH in the winter season in order to fit as much as possible into their business trip and return at the end of the week without too many stopovers. With our fourth weekly winter frequency, we are meeting this request,” said Marc Sam, Air Canada Country Manager.
Copenhagen Airport's Director of Airline Sales & Route Development Ole Wieth Christensen notes that leisure travellers also get additional options.
“This will make it even easier for Danish travellers to fly to Canada, and not least to use Air Canada's hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport, which offers convenient onward connections to the USA and South America, for example,” said Ole Wieth Christensen.
A founding member of the world's largest airline alliance, Star Alliance, Air Canada has 27,000 employees and operates flights to 178 destinations – a large number of them from Toronto Pearson International.
The added weekly winter flight from CPH will be on Mondays using one of the airline's Boeing B767 aircraft.
