This summer, Air Canada will operate 450,000 more seats than summer 2010 to and from its Toronto hub, including new daily service to four major international destinations.

"Air Canada is expanding its international, transborder and domestic services this summer, with much of that growth occurring in our Toronto hub. Following the success of new route additions last year we are enhancing our schedule and adding 450,000 more seats than last summer, primarily by making flights to Copenhagen, Madrid, Dublin and Santiago daily, doubling the number of flights to Barcelona to six a week, and adding a fourth weekly frequency to Athens," said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Air Canada. "This growth comes on top of 680,000 seats we added to and from Toronto in 2010. As the world's most multi-cultural city, Toronto by itself generates and attracts a great deal of international traffic. With Lester B. Pearson International Airport's ideal geographic location, easy in-transit customs and connection processes for international travelers, and the fact Air Canada's operations are consolidated in a single terminal featuring comfortable Maple Leaf Lounges, we are poised to make Toronto a leading global aviation hub."

Major increases in service from Toronto for summer 2011 include:

Santiago/Buenos Aires Daily (from 5 weekly) 2 May 2011
Madrid Daily (from 5 weekly) 8 June 2011
Copenhagen Daily (from 5 weekly) 15 June 2011
Dublin Daily (from 6 weekly) 29 June 2011
Barcelona Six times weekly (from 3 weekly) 30 June 2011
Athens Four times weekly (from 3 weekly) 1 July 2011

The additional capacity will result in more service from points across Canada in all three of Air Canada's major market segments. New service highlights for summer 2011 include:

New Orleans Toronto Daily (extended winter service) Immediate
Montreal Sept-Iles Daily non-stop 7 March 2011
Tokyo Calgary Five from three times weekly 26 March 2011
