Air Canada further expands Canada-Italy service

Travel News Asia 11 February 2003

Air Canada continues to improve air access to Europe with the introduction of new services to southern Italy and additional flights to Venice. Air Canada now offers daily flights on a codeshare basis via Rome to Lamezia Terme, Catania, Palermo and Venice in cooperation with Italian carrier Air One, a Lufthansa partner airline. Flights are scheduled to provide customers with convenient connections to Air Canada's daily non-stop flights to Rome. Members of Air Canada's frequent flyer program, Aeroplan, enjoy accumulation and redemption benefits on these new services.

"The addition of Lamezia Terme, Catania and Palermo as new Air Canada destinations further enhances our European network, while building on our daily non-stop service to Rome, gateway to southern Italy," said Ross MacCormack, Senior Vice President, International and Alliances. "We are pleased to enhance air access between Canada and Italy in cooperation with Air One, a Lufthansa partner airline."

In November 2002, Air Canada expanded service to Italy with the introduction of daily flights to Venice and Bologna on a codeshare basis via Frankfurt in cooperation with its Star Alliance partner, Lufthansa, as well as flights between Munich and Venice five times per week in cooperation with Lufthansa partner airline, Air Dolomiti.

In addition to operating daily non-stop service to Rome, Air Canada offers codeshare service between Toronto and Milan. Air Canada also offers daily non-stop flights between Montral, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Frankfurt, as well as non-stop flights between Toronto and Munich.
