Air Canada has unveiled plans to launch non-stop services from Toronto and Montreal in summer 2018, including three new destinations in its global network Bucharest, Zagreb and Porto and a new route between Montreal and Lisbon.

Air Canada will also launch a non-stop service to Buenos Aires from Toronto, which today is served through a one-stop service via Santiago. Air Canada will continue to service Santiago with its non-stop service from Toronto. Its Montreal-Lima service will be extended to year-round.
