MIAMI – Air Canada (AC) continues to rebuild its international network following a lengthy pandemic-induced traffic decline.

Despite concerns about Covid variants, Canada’s largest airline has resumed operations between Montreal (YUL) and London’s Heathrow airport (LHR) four times weekly. In addition to the current daily service from Toronto (YYZ) to LHR, the airline also offers flights six times a week from Vancouver to Great Britain’s capital, increasing daily on Aug. 17.

This week AC also resumed service to Dublin, Ireland (DUB) three times a week, continuing a slow but steady resumption of international service.

Other European routes – including Calgary-Frankfurt, have also resumed.
