Air Canada Is Bringing Back So Many International Flights & Summer 2022 Is Looking Up
Fancy a trip to Barcelona, Dublin or Casablanca?
Pack your bags! Air Canada is expanding a bunch of their international schedules and relaunching flights that were previously grounded or cancelled due to border measures around the world.
On Tuesday, February 22, the airline announced its plans for summer 2022, and they include flights to many fun destinations.
"Starting next month, non-stop services will begin resuming from Toronto to Tel Aviv, Paris, Tokyo and Amsterdam, signs that recovery is well underway," Air Canada said.
From Montreal, service to Casablanca, Nice, Algiers, Rome, Tel Aviv and Tokyo will be resuming. From Vancouver, you'll be able to hop on a flight to Frankfurt, Dublin or Zurich.
The airline is also relaunching service to popular European tourist cities like Barcelona, Budapest, Copenhagen, Madrid, Milan and Venice, which have all been suspended since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020.

And if you're planning on booking a getaway, it's about to get a little cheaper to get back into Canada.
Starting February 28, fully vaccinated travellers arriving in Canada from any country will only need to take a PCR test on arrival if they are randomly selected to do so. Otherwise, proof of a negative rapid antigen test will suffice.
