Air Canada is checking in on its surrealism, with the airline planning to launch a year-round service between Toronto and Brussels.
The Boeing 787 will feature a three-class cabin, with Signature Class (Business Class), Premium Economy and Economy services.
Timings should be good for those who need to connect in Toronto for Canadian Domestic/US services, and for those in Brussels who need to connect to the Brussels Airlines European network.
Mark Galardo, Vice President of Network Planning at Air Canada said:
“We are pleased to launch new non-stop, year-round flights from Toronto to Brussels, complementing our successful Montreal-Brussels service now celebrating its tenth anniversary. This is a further expansion of Air Canada’s reach to Europe and beyond. This new service will conveniently connect our extensive North American network through our Toronto Pearson global hub directly to Brussels, where our Star Alliance partner Brussels Airlines offers far-reaching connections throughout Europe and Africa,”
Brussels Airlines to operate Montreal instead
Brussels Airlines – which currently operate the Brussels-Toronto pair on a seasonal basis will switch to operating Brussels-Montreal pair instead for the summer season, whilst boosting its Washington DC Service in the winter season.
For those collecting points and miles – check as usual with your carriers programme to ensure that you earn the most possible miles and qualification spend as needed when these changes hit.
On the upside – the Brussels-Toronto pair becomes a year round service, without the need to change plane along route. For those who prefer city-to-city journeys, this will be a welcome addition to the Star Alliance network.
editors note – Yes, I know it’s an Air Canada Boeing 787-9. I don’t have any of the 787-8s in my photographic library…
