Canada’s flag carrier Air Canada has finally decided to resume passenger flights from Ireland. It will initially fly its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner three times non-stop between Dublin and Toronto per week. The airline also informed in its statement that the Dreamliner aircraft will also carry a range of commodities, including general cargo and temperature-controlled goods, machinery and industrial parts, aircraft spares, e-commerce products, as well as pharmaceuticals and medical supplies, manufactured by both Irish and Ireland-based multinational companies.
It has been decided that the outbound service from Dublin to Toronto will operate on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays and the return service from Toronto to Dublin will fly on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Air Canada’s Signature Class, premium economy, and economy seating are all available for purchase on these flights. However, the airline will also accommodate commercial goods, including crucial medical products alongside passengers.
The carrier has also introduced a series of new safety measures in place to minimise the risk of coronavirus spread across its services. It is also offering rebooking options to passengers with economy class tickets if their flights are close to full capacity. Additionally, the company is introducing new touchless processes at airports, along with enhancing its in-flight service and amenities.
