Air Canada is set to relaunch 34 long-haul routes this spring including flights to top destinations such as Rome, Budapest, Copenhagen, Madrid, Tel Aviv and Milan.

The returning routes will begin service on Mar. 1, with a flight from Toronto to Tel Aviv. Over 50 percent of the 34 routes are scheduled to resume in March and April.

“This is very exciting news for our customers especially now that Omicron is behind us, countries are reopening and border measures are being eased around the world for fully vaccinated travelers,” said Mark Galardo, senior vice president, network planning and revenue management at Air Canada.

“Air Canada’s recovery is well underway and gaining strength, and we are pleased to expand our international network across four continents as we respond to pent-up demand.”

The announcement comes after the airline revealed the resumption of ten additional short-haul routes including Toronto to Salt Lake City; Montréal to Atlanta, Detroit, Gander, Minneapolis, Nashville, and San Diego; Vancouver to Austin and Halifax; and Calgary to Fort St. John.
