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 Canada.

Seats on these flights are now available for sale.
