Dublin Airport is delighted to welcome the launch of Air Canada’s new summer service to Montréal today.
The four times weekly service will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Welcoming the launch of Air Canada’s new Dublin to Montréal service Dublin Airport Senior Vice President Aviation Business Development Jon Woolf said: “I am delighted to see Air Canada’s route network go from strength to strength at Dublin Airport. With 13% of the Canadian population claiming Irish ancestry I have no doubt that Montréal will be a popular destination for both Irish and Canadian holidaymakers.
“There is also a strong corporate connection between the two countries. Ireland is the fifth largest recipient of Canadian investment overseas, with about 80 Canadian companies located in Ireland, while there are also more than 60 Irish companies with operations in Canada. We will work closely with Air Canada to promote its new service.”
Launching the new route Air Canada Sales Manager Ireland Bláithín O’Donnell said: “Our new Dublin to Montréal service will provide our Irish leisure and business customers with a great new destination to visit and a range of new connection possibilities. The historic links between Montréal and Ireland are further strengthened by this connection and we are looking forward to extending a fáilte to visitors from Québec this summer and we know that they will have a bienvenue for our Irish travellers.”
Air Canada will operate its new service with a Boeing 737 MAX 8 with a two-cabin configuration, with 16 Premium Economy seats in the front cabin, and 153 Economy seats, including 54 Preferred seats with additional legroom in the rear cabin.
