Looking to travel to Ireland next summer? Well, Air Canada just made the journey a little bit easier. And the good news is: you can start booking your tickets soon.
Air Canada announced that it will be expanding its flights from Toronto to Shannon.
The airline’s existing Toronto to Dublin service will be transferred from Air Canada Red to Air Canada’s main operation effective October 29, 2017, with an increased frequency of flights this winter and daily flights next summer.
Flights will be provided by Air Canada’s latest single-aisle aircraft, the Boeing 737 MAX 8.
“With the right aircraft on the cheap, Air Canada seems to have the luck of the Irish, and we want to share it with our customers,” said Benjamin Smith, president of Air Canada’s passenger carriers, in a release. “Beginning in the summer of 2018, we will build on the growth of traffic between Canada and Ireland and launch two new routes to Ireland, between Toronto and Shannon and between Montreal and Dublin.”
Toronto flights to Shannon will be scheduled for Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday.
Tickets for new services will be available for sale starting September 19 and flights will begin in June 2018.
