Air Canada has launched a seasonal service
between Montreal and Dublin, Ireland.
The non-stop flights will be
operated until 12 October 2018 using Air Canada's newest
single-aisle aircraft, the Boeing 737 MAX 8 featuring a Premium
Economy and Economy cabin configuration.
Dana Welch, Tourism Ireland's Manager in Canada, said: "We are
excited about the launch of the new Air Canada route between
Montreal and Dublin. Tourism Ireland looks forward to continuing
to work closely with Air Canada and the Dublin airport to support
demand for this route. As an island destination, the importance of
convenient, direct, non-stop flights cannot be overstated Ė they are absolutely critical to achieving growth in inbound tourism."
Air Canada has configured its Boeing 737 MAX with two
cabins of service: Premium Economy and Economy. Features of the
new aircraft include:
* Premium comfort and ambiance with
improved seats and innovative LED mood lighting along the ceiling;
* An upgraded in-flight entertainment system with a sleek, new
15 language user interface. Coming soon, passengers will be able
to stream video and audio to their own devices;
overhead storage space compartments offer additional space for
every single passenger to bring a carry-on bag;
* The latest
quiet engine technology with up to 40 per cent noise reduction,
offering more peace and quiet for customers when flying;
Boeing 737 MAX burns 20 per cent less fuel per seat than the
previous Next-Generation 737.
"Capitalizing on the growing traffic between
Canada and Ireland, we are pleased to inaugurate Montreal-Dublin
flights," said Benjamin Smith, President Passenger Airlines at Air
Canada. "Air Canada will offer the best market coverage of any
carrier between Canada and Ireland with service between three
Canadian hubs and two Irish destinations. This includes new
Toronto-Shannon flights, up to daily non-stop Toronto-Dublin
service, as well as seasonal non-stop Vancouver-Dublin service."
