Air Canada to expand service to Copenhagen

Air Canada to boost flights between Copenhagen and Toronto
Air Canada plans to fly more Danish travellers to international destinations via Toronto. From there, they have a vast choice of flights to US, Latin American and Caribbean destinations.
Until now, Air Canada has offered daily flights between Copenhagen and Toronto during the summer season, while the route has usually been reduced in winter. That is about to change. Next winter, the Star Alliance founding member says it will increase 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’s country manager.
Copenhagen Airport’s director of airline sales and route development, Ole Wieth Christensen, notes that leisure travellers get additional options, “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.”
Air Canada has 27,000 employees and operates flights to 178 destinations – a large number of them from Toronto. The added weekly winter flight from CPH will be on Mondays using a Boeing B767.
