There increasing speculation that Montreal could see a direct link to Munich as early as next summer!
Firstly, many people on this board have claimed to have read such a notice in a German Aviation magazine, claiming that Air Canada would commence the route from YUL next summer.
Then a fellow posters on the Montreal Dorval message board had this to say:
"I just spoke with a lufthansa sales agent regarding one of our groups travelling next october.
She said the rumour about a direct flight Dorval-munich should turn into reality.
And it could be a lufthansa aircraft doing the air service.
So we should have any news by october."
So now it looks like LH(lufthansa) might be the one doing the flying.
Montreal Dorval's international markets are growing at an average of 10% a yeart since the transfer of flights from Mirabel to Dorval. Lufthansa will have a competitive advantage given that it;s a STAR member, and STAR carries 64-65% of all YUL traffic.
Do you guys think it's a longshot? Have you heard any rumours about such a direct link?
