Air Canada announces new Shannon to Toronto route”

The new routes will start in June 2018.

"Beginning summer 2018, we will capitalise on the growing traffic between Ireland and Canada and launch two new routes from Ireland, Shannon to Toronto and Dublin to Montreal".

AIR Canada has announced it will operate a new direct service between Shannon Airport and Toronto next summer.

"It will appeal to both the many Irish with friends and family in this great city and to the Irish Canadian business communities, who will benefit from non-stop flights to facilitate the ever increasing trade between these two cities".

Air Canada now operates 14 flights a week from Dublin to Vancouver and Toronto.

"As an island destination, the importance of convenient, direct flights can not be overstated - they are absolutely critical to achieving continued growth in inbound tourism".

And if you're looking for some holiday inspo, you'll be pleased to know that Dublin Airport has announced a new direct service to the very pretty city of Montreal.

The increased service provides a major boost for both leisure and business tourism from Canada to the island of Ireland, says Dana Welch, Tourism Ireland's Manager Canada.

Canada is the 10th largest economy in the world and is ranked 22nd out of 190 countries for ease of doing business.

These Air Canada routes above are seasonal service which will operate in summer 2018. There were over 200,000 Canadian visitors to Ireland in 2016.
