Benjamin Smith, Air Canada's president of passenger airlines, said that it will use its new single-aisle Boeing 737 Max 8 craft on the planned flights from Dublin to Montreal and Shannon to Toronto.

AIR Canada has announced it will operate a new direct service between Shannon Airport and Toronto next summer. "Beginning summer 2018, we will capitalize on the growing traffic between Canada and Ireland and launch two new routes to Ireland, Toronto to Shannon and Montreal to Dublin".

Air Canada will also boost its non-stop Dublin-Toronto service, increasing frequencies from the end of October to four times a-week from three, and flying every day next summer.

Canadian Ambassador to Ireland Kevin Vickers believes the flight will help strengthen the bond between both countries.

The Canadian airline has revealed that they will have a direct flight from Shannon to Toronto and Dublin to Montreal. "We look forward to working closely with Air Canada, Shannon Airport and other tourism interests, to maximise the promotion of this new flight and maintain the strong growth momentum", said its CEO Niall Gibbons.

The routes are part of a major expansion of the airline's Irish services.

Dublin Airport also welcomed the announcement, with its managing director Vincent Harrison saying he was "delighted to see Air Canada go from strength to strength" in Dublin.

"With 13pc of the Canadian population claiming Irish ancestry I have no doubt that Montreal will be a popular destination for both Irish and Canadian holidaymakers", he added.
