Air Canada has commenced its fourth new international destination from Toronto this year with a new service to Copenhagen. “Air Canada is building its Toronto hub and this year we have launched long-haul service to four new, major European destinations,” explained Air Canada Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer Ben Smith. “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.” The service will operate as the only direct flight from Canada to Scandinavia. A Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft will fly on the route and commences today. Air Canada also runs services to Athens and Barcelona directly and to Brussels via Montreal.
