After two years of reduced service, Air Canada's recovery is well underway. The airline recently announced expansion of its international network across four continents as they respond to pent-up demand. Their vast and growing network has been built to increase connectivity to and from global destinations through Montréal and other Canadian hubs.

Combined with the networks of their Star Alliance partners, Air Canada can offer customers easy access to Montréal from virtually any destination in the world. In other words, it’s never been easier to reach Montréal.
