Air Canada today launched the first two of 11 new international routes commencing this summer, with inaugural flights from Vancouver to Nagoya and Frankfurt marking the beginning of the airline's summer season.

The 11 new international services will be operated from Vancouver, Toronto or Montreal, either by Air Canada mainline, using Boeing 787-8/9 or Airbus A330-300 aircraft, or by Air Canada Rouge, flying Boeing 767-300ER or A319-100 aircraft.

Two routes, Vancouver-Taipei and Toronto-Mumbai, will continue to operate year-round while the others are available for the summer season. These international additions to Air Canada's network follow on new transborder routes started this year from Vancouver to Boston, Denver and Dallas; from Toronto to Savannah, San Antonio, and Memphis and Montreal to Dallas; and, later this month, from Montreal to Washington Dulles.
