Air France is betting strongly on Canada and continues to increase its capacity to this destination. For the summer of 2023, the airline will operate up to 50 weekly flights to five destinations: Ottawa (new service for summer 2023), Quebec (route inaugurated in 2022), Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver (destinations served throughout the year).

The link between Paris-CDG and Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier will be inaugurated on June 27, 2023 and will be operated five times a week – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday – with 224-seat Airbus A330-200s.
Inaugurated in the summer of 2022, the Paris-Charles de Gaulle-Québec seasonal service will resume this year from May 2, 2023. There will be three weekly Boeing 787-9 flights on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Flights to the three destinations served all year round by the airline will also be increased: the overall capacity of flights to Canada will therefore be more than 25% compared to 2019. Thus, Air France will have traffic between the Paris hub -Charles de Gaulle and Montreal up to three daily flights, Toronto with two daily flights, and Vancouver with one daily flight.

This summer, KLM will also connect Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Toronto with up to 13 weekly flights, Calgary with 7 weekly flights, Vancouver with up to 7 weekly flights, Montreal with up to 5 weekly flights, and Edmonton with up to 4 weekly flights.
