Air Canada Launches Non-Stop Flights Between Montreal and Casablanca

Air Canada has launched non-stop flights between Montreal and Casablanca's Mohammed V International Airport, Air Canada's first African route.

Flights between Montreal and the famed Moroccan city will be operated until 29 October 2016 by Air Canada Rouge, Air Canada's leisure carrier, with a 282-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. Service is scheduled to resume on 1 May 2017.

"The launch of Air Canada's first route to Africa is a significant new addition to our international network. Our new service will be appealing for tourists traveling to Casablanca and beyond, the large Moroccan community based in Montreal as well as business travellers due to the historically close ties between Quebec and Morocco," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. "We aim to eventually convert this seasonal route to a year-round service."

 The launch of flights to Casablanca makes Air Canada one of the few airlines in the world to fly to six continents.
