Air Canada has launched year-round, non-stop service between Montreal and Lyon, the company said.
Flights will operate five times weekly during the summer and four times weekly during the winter with a Boeing 767-300ER featuring 24 international business class lie-flat suites and 187 economy class seats.
Air Canada serves Paris Charles de Gaulle with up to four daily flights, two from Montreal and two from Toronto. This new mainline route to Lyon is expected to increase convenience for customers travelling to France for business or leisure.
Air Canada is a large Canadian domestic and international airline serving more than 200 airports on six continents that served more than 41 million customers in 2015.
