Air Canada is to launch year-round non-stop flights between Montréal and Brussels, with same-plane service continuing on to / from Toronto.

 Flights will begin daily, subject to government approval, in time for summer peak travel on June 12, 2010.

 Flights on the new Brussels route are timed to offer travellers convenient connections to Air Canada's extensive North America network via the carrier's Montréal hub to and from: Toronto (same plane), Ottawa, Québec City, Halifax, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Washington and New York.

 In Brussels, connecting flights will be available with future Star Alliance partner Brussels Airlines to/from several European and African destinations including Toulouse, Lyon and Marseilles, France; Abidjan, Ivory Coast; Dakar, Senegal; Douala, Cameroun; Bologna and Milan, Italy; and Porto, Portugal.

"The introduction of the only year-round non-stop service between Montréal and Brussels, headquarters of the European Commission and Parliament, and other international organizations, is great news for customers travelling on business, for leisure as well as freight forwarders," said Marcel Forget, Vice President, Network Planning. "Air Canada's new direct non-stop Brussels service will offer more choice for convenient international travel via our Montréal hub providing easy access to several destinations in Europe and Africa."

Wilfried Van Assche, CEO of Brussels Airport applauded the news, "Both our business and leisure passengers will be delighted with the year-round Air Canada service between Montréal and Brussels. The daily connection will be an asset to the strong links between Belgium and Quebec. This service could not have come at a better time for Canadian passengers as well: they will now fully enjoy an attractive Star Alliance network from Brussels to Europe and Africa."

By next summer Air Canada will offer non stop service between Montréal and six European gateway cities including London, Paris, Frankfurt, Geneva and Rome.

 Air Canada's Star Alliance partners Lufthansa and Swiss International Air Lines also offer services from Montréal to Munich and Zurich respectively, further increasing connections and travel options.

Air Canada will operate the new Montréal-Brussels non-stop service using newly refurbished 211-seat Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft offering a choice of Economy Class and Executive First service featuring 24 lay flat bed suites.
