The departure of flight AC082 this week marks the successful launch of Air Canada’s non-stop Montreal service to Tel Aviv.
This new seasonal service will operate twice weekly from June 22 to October 16, 2017.
Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada, said: ”Air Canada is the leader in the Canada-Israel market, which we have served for 22 years. Today we are pleased to launch a new seasonal non-stop service between Montreal and Tel Aviv, which will also offer convenient connections throughout Canada and the U.S. and complement our existing daily year-round flights from Toronto,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.
“This new service also reflects Air Canada’s ongoing international expansion strategy, from which Montreal is deriving significant benefits. Since the beginning of the year Air Canada has launched new services from Montreal to Shanghai, Marseilles, Reykjavík, Dallas and Washington Dulles with Algiers scheduled on July 1.”
Denis Coderre, Mayor of Montreal, added: ”On behalf of all Montrealers, I am proud to take part in this ceremony marking the inaugural flight linking Montreal to Tel Aviv. This new direct service is the result of dynamic collaborative efforts, as demonstrated by the important trade mission to Israel. This new service is a concrete example of the thriving links that unite our cities and our countries,”
