New Route of the Day – Americas (18 June 2024): Air Canada between Montreal and Seoul ICN


Air Canada introduced another intercontinental service by launching seasonal flights between Montreal and Seoul ICN on Tuesday 18 June. The 10,600-kilometre route will run 4-weekly, departing Canada’s second largest city on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, with the 298-seat 787-9 Dreamliner. It faces no competition between the two.

Flight AC67 departs Montreal at 12:35 local time, arriving in Seoul ICN at 16:25 the following afternoon. The return service, operating as flight AC68, takes off from the South Korean capital at 18:00 local time, arriving back in Canada at 18:30 local time.

What they said

Mark Galardo, Executive Vice President, Revenue and Network Planning at Air Canada, said: “Montreal is comparable to Chicago, Toronto, Washington, and Atlanta for international flights. Montreal has reached the major leagues. The city is in the top five largest transatlantic hubs in North America. It’s really impressive. With continued high demand for visiting friends, relatives and leisure travel, our increased services to key destinations give customers more options than ever before.”
