Air Canada is to launch non-stop flights between
Toronto and Rio de Janeiro on 11 December 2014.
The year-round flights to Rio will complement
Air Canada's existing daily non-stop service to Sao Paulo.
The airline will commence operating the route
with flights three days a week.
The service will
be provided with a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with 24 International
Business Class and 187 Economy seats.
"Air Canada is very pleased to become the only
carrier offering non-stop flights between Canada and the storied
Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro ... The service will complement our Toronto-Sao
Paulo route, meaning Air Canada will now offer two destinations in
Brazil, one of the largest and most vibrant economies in the
world, and strengthens our position as the only carrier flying
non-stop between Canada and South America," said Benjamin Smith,
Executive Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer at Air
Seats on these flights are now available for sale.
