Air Canada is to begin a daily service to DUB from June; it will operate YYZ-DUB, but return via SNN, as Irish government policy requires this; similar arrangement applies to DL and CO from the US.

No doubt the antiquated bilateral had something to do with the delay; last scheduled service between Ireland and Canada was in the late '70s, when EI operated 707s to YUL and ORD, although AC operated charter 747s for many years and C3 and Skybus have been regulars; perhaps AC is taking advantage of C3 being out of the picture. Whatever the reason, great news indeed and best of luck to AC on the route.

If anyone has firm info on acft type (I'm assuming 767s to start and A330s in due course, once they can operate n/s in both directions.)

The official press release at:

http://biz.yahoo.com/cnw/020116/a_aircan_ireland_1.html

Says it'll be operated by Boeing 767s.

Hello,

Sweet, very very sweet.  Smile  Smile

And another missed opportunity for good old EI.

Surprisingly, nothing on Irish teletext yet.

Nice route announcement, indeed. I wonder if CPH'll be added on next --even if just summer only-- after being dropped last fall, from YYZ's docket.

Pretty accommodating scheduling times too, for Canadian connections through T.O. for the flight.

YYZ-CPH to start up again in April, 2002 (Summer months only). I am flying to CPH on Friday, and
Arrrrrrgh, have to fly via FRA. Sure do miss the direct
YYZ-CPH flight.

Canadi>an Boy thanks, I was half-way going to add a "but maybe there's been a thread or new about this (CPH route) already" -- I haven't been around here much, too much 'Net time spent on MidEast and Sept. 11 messageboards, alas-- but that's good to hear that AC's taking up the route again ( I know a few folks were a bit bummed, when they dropped it last fall).

Yeah direct is always nicer, all right, though FRA`s a pretty short hop away. So hopefully the layover'll be real short too. A turboprop run, for that second flight?

Hey Mark, no, actually, it the FRA-CPH flight will be on an A310-300. Return, CPH-FRA will be an A321. Yeah, I for one was very bummed out when AC dropped YYZ-CPH (seasonal). I fly to CPH about 2-3 times a year, and believe me, it makes all the difference in the world to fly straight through. Although, I love FRA for
plane spotting.

I will be flying AC YYZ-FRA on a B-747-400 Combi,
both ways.

FYI: CPH Kastrup Airport is amongst the best of any airport for shopping. Great stores, boutiques. And now, there is a new train service line running from Kastrup to then main station downtown. travel time is approximately 12-15 minutes. Super.

Kind regards

Canadi>n Boy, LoL, what was I thinking, with the turboprop run, between those two airports.(maybe too many airliners.net photos seen of SAS's Q-400s, I guess Big grin )

Just looked at the Kastrup schedule page now, something like 8 or 9 FRA-CPH flights daily, and split between SK and LH, almost entirely.

I fully believe CPH's a great airport --I'm pretty sure all major Northern European ones are, each with people-friendly architecture and layout --handy transit links sure included, in that-- and each a unique style as well. One of these days I'll hopefully get to check it out. Especially with the new Oresund tunnel literally next door, Kastrup's got to be more of a happening place, than ever before.
