Air Canada will add six new destinations to its international network in 2017, including year-round Boeing 787-9 service between Toronto and Mumbai and between Vancouver and Taipei.

The new routes include:

  • Toronto to Mumbai and Berlin;
  • Montreal to Algiers and Marseille;
  • Vancouver to Taipei and Nagoya.

The new services will launch for summer 2017, Air Canada said, with the Montreal-Algiers and the Vancouver-Taipei routes subject to government approvals.

"Air Canada is pleased to offer customers these new non-stop routes to exciting destinations around the world. While extending our global reach, they also represent a further deepening of our already substantial international network," said Benjamin Smith, president, passenger airlines at Air Canada.

Air Canada will be the only carrier to offer non-stop service between Canada and Mumbai and the only Canadian carrier to operate non-stop service to Taipei, with both flights operating year-round on Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.

According to Air Canada, the new seasonal routes to Berlin and Nagoya will be the only non-stop services between these cities and Canada; service to Algiers will be the only non-stop flight by a Canadian carrier between Montreal and the North African city and the Marseille service will be the only non-stop flight operated by a network carrier between Marseille and North America. All will be operated with an Air Canada Rouge Boeing 767-300ER.

All flights are available for sale immediately with special introductory pricing, except for Vancouver-Taipei and Montreal-Algiers which will be available for sale in the near future pending government approvals.
