Air Canada Cancelling YYZ-CPH

Thu Dec 18, 2003 8:11 am

After a brief one summer re-introduction,

It seems Air Canada will not go ahead with YYZ-CPH next year.

Air Canada has discontinued all sales in reservation systems.

YYZ-NRT is still there, so if AC cna get its hand on one A340-300, it will most likely recommence this route (hoping the SARS thing doenst get out of hand in Aisa)

Hopefully a Cdn charter carrier will commence a few weekly flights in this new void next summer.

Also, perhaps the Cdn govt can re-think about approving Finnair's request for 5th freedoms on HEL-ARN-YYZ since there will be no traffic loss to AC at CPH.

What a surpise!!!  Smile

If AC gets the A345's or 46's next year it will probably reinstate all these routes....... They're like a guy holding on to a rope in quicksand right now...... Eventually they'll get tired or the rope will break!

I doubt it Martin. CPH and MAD were served by 763's which seem to be better sized for the market than the much larger and more expensive 345/346.

MAD/FCO/CPH.. all low-yield markets for the most part. I think AC is doing whats best for their bottom-line.

I dont like the yYZ-MAD cut.. but thats the nature of the business

Well, the AC 343 is making periodic technical stops in ARN on the YYZ-DEL route.

Has there been any press release.

It has become the norm, rather than the exception, for airlines to not release PRs when they are ending service to a destination. It gives them bad press. USAirways, for example, ended at least 10-15 destinations (Express) during bankruptcy, but only five were announced in PRs (Madison, Baton Rouge, Lansing, Worcester, and Saginaw).

I have it from a high placed Iberia source, ie way up Americas management, that unfortunately it looks like if AC cuts the MAD service they will not step in, although they've cosnidered YYZ and they might still. Sorry to disappoint you Mark, and this is not intended to cause any side debates, but I asked directly whether they were thinking about canada and was told not likely but that it would only be YYZ they would come to, YUL is not even considered a remote possibility.

He thinks Transat or one of the cdn Charters will try to pick up the MAD route, much of that traffic was summer leisure pax anyway.

I agree with you though Mark, it's a darned shame Canada can't support direct service to Spain.
