On Monday, Air Canada said that it is hoping to launch a seasonal flight between Montreal and Cairo in June and is waiting for the necessary approvals. The new service will commence on June 17th and run three times per week. Operated by a Boeing 787-8, this news marks the second new destination to the Middle East North Africa region in months.
According to Media In Toronto, Air Canada has confirmed that it will operate a seasonal flight to Egypt with an airline spokesperson issuing the following statement:
“We can confirm that Air Canada will operate a seasonal flight between Montreal and Cairo starting on June 17, with three flights a week on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner,”
While the news has yet to surface on the airline’s website or social media, the new service can be found on the airline’s booking engine on its website. We ran a search for a flight from Montreal to Cairo, departing June 17th and returning on the 25th, and found a non-stop service.
