Can anyone tell me why AC doesn't fly regularly to Schiphol? KLM flies multiple times daily with large a/c to YYZ, YUL, YYC and YVR. In summertime there is also Air Transat to various destinations. There is a lot of VFR-traffic between the Netherlands and Canada. Surely they could fill a daily B763 to YYZ, esp. given all the connection opportunities thoughout Canada and the US? Why do they leave the Dutch market alone? Thanks!

Somewhere in 2006/2007 they stopped flying to AMS. They flew the route with a 767 and if I recall correctly it was only a seasonal service. They opted to funnel passengers bound for AMS via LHR and FRA with Star Alliance partners BD and LH. I do not know if they have any plans to reopen AMS in the future.

The only reason I can see is because of the Star Alliance. Brussels give a lot of opprtunities with SN Brussels to Africa.
Francfort is the tie with Lufthansa. Paris and London are the main European airports for historical reason for so long.
