Air Canada has launched daily non-stop flights between Montréal and Rome.

During this summer's peak travel season, this service will link, on a daily basis, the Italian capital with Air Canada's extensive Québec and Atlantic Canada network, as well as major cities on the Eastern U.S. seaboard.

Starting October 27, 2009, Air Canada will offer year-round Montréal-Rome flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, with same-plane service continuing on to/from Toronto.

"This is great news for Montreal's Italian community and travelers in Atlantic Canada and the U.S. who will benefit from year-round direct service and substantial time savings," said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. "The inauguration of our year-round non-stop service between Montréal and Rome strengthens Air Canada's commitment to offer convenient flights from Montréal to key international destinations. Air Canada's superior schedule, product offering and loyalty benefits through Aeroplan clearly make Air Canada the airline of choice for customers."

For greater convenience and travel choice, this service is timed to offer connecting flights to popular destinations in Italy, including Bari, Lamezia, Milan, Palermo and Venice.

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

Air Canada's Montreal-Rome non-stop service will be operated using a newly refurbished 211-seat Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft offering a choice of Economy Class and Executive First service featuring 24 lie flat bed suites.

This summer Air Canada will have increased capacity across the Atlantic from Montréal by 35% year over year, with non stop service to five European gateway cities including London, Paris, Frankfurt, Geneva and Rome.
