Air Canada is undertaking a major expansion of international services to Europe from Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary.

The airline has announced highlights of its summer 2014 Europe schedule, which includes the introduction of year-round non-stop services from Toronto to Milan, Italy with up to five weekly flights, offering the only non-stop service between Canada and Milan.

The carrier will also increase its year-round Toronto-Istanbul non-stop service to daily flights from three times weekly, expand the availability of its new international Premium Economy cabin with its introduction on Vancouver-Heathrow flights year-round, as well as Montreal-Heathrow flights during the peak summer travel season.

Larger aircraft will also be deployed on flights from Calgary to Heathrow and Frankfurt, as well as from Montreal to Brussels and Geneva in order to meet travel and cargo demand during the peak summer season.

As part of the summer 2014 schedule, the airline's leisure carrier subsidiary, Air Canada rouge, will launch seasonal non-stop flights between Toronto-Lisbon, Toronto-Manchester, Montreal-Barcelona and Montreal-Nice. The new routes supplement the leisure carrier's other popular vacation destinations, including a previously announced Toronto-Dublin year-round service, as well as holiday and cruise package options offered in conjunction with Air Canada Vacations.
