Air Canada will operate the most seats and frequencies between Canada and the Czech Republic this summer and, as the only network carrier flying between the two countries, it offers customers a wide range of onward connections throughout the rest of Air Canada’s extensive network. The Czech Capital is the first of three new destinations Air Canada Rouge will serve in Central Europe this summer from Toronto, soon to be followed by Budapest and Warsaw, providing the widest range of travel options for the growing traffic between the region and North America,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada.
