Air Canada has resumed flights between London Heathrow and Montreal.

The Canadian flag carrier is initially providing a three-times weekly nonstop service, with the outbound service operating on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The return service from Montreal will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

This will increase this to four-times-weekly from September 8.

The flights are operated by a newly reconfigured A330-300 which features 32 Signature Class, 24 Premium Economy and 241 Economy seats.

Meanwhile, the airline offers a daily nonstop service from Heathrow to Toronto, and a six-times-weekly nonstop service to Vancouver – the latter will increase to daily from August 17.

Stephen Gerrard, Air Canada General Manager Sales, UK and Ireland, commented:

“We are excited to restart our service between London Heathrow and Montréal. Our nonstop service from London Heathrow provides our customers from the UK with greater travel choice and the possibility to connect via our Montréal hub to 20 onward destinations across North America.”

The airline has also begun to rebuild its route network to the US, with a summer schedule that includes 55 routes to 34 destinations.
