Air Canada has launched non-stop flights between Toronto Pearson and Rio de Janeiro - Galeo International Airport.

The year-round flight to Brazil's "Marvelous City" will complement Air Canada's existing daily non-stop service to Sao Paulo and further drive Air Canada's international expansion strategy.

"Air Canada is very pleased to become the only carrier operating non-stop flights between Canada and the celebrated city of Rio de Janeiro. The service complements our Toronto-Sao Paulo route, meaning Air Canada now offers two destinations in Brazil. The new route also reinforces our market-leading position as the only carrier flying non-stop between Canada and South America," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada. "This service offers some of the quickest elapsed travel times from many U.S. north-east cities and is timed for convenient connections to our network over our Toronto Pearson global hub, including to Tokyo-Haneda, Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai, and further expands Air Canada's global reach from Toronto. All flights will offer our International Business Class with lie flat seats, complimentary seatback entertainment throughout the aircraft and, for eligible customers, priority services including access in Toronto to our International Maple Leaf Lounge and concierge service."

Three-times-weekly service is being operated with a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with 24 International Business Class and 187 Economy seats.
