best airline emblemMay 1, 2018 - Introduced non-stop service between Toronto (YYZ) and Buenos Aires (EZE) aboard our Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

In the past, we operated this route via Santiago as southbound YYZ-SCL-EZE and northbound EZE-SCL-YYZ. Now our YYZ-EZE and YYZ-SCL flights will each be non-stop.

Air Canada does not plan to exercise its remaining thirteen B-787 options as per CFO Michael Rouseau. The company has decided on the less costly option of upgrading the cabins on its current A330-300 fleet to match the B-787's.  They will also add another four leased A330's.

Air mail service is 70 years old.

  • "All up" service for first class mail, inaugurated July l, 1948.
  • Canada Post and Air Canada - both known in those days as the Post Office Department of Canada and Trans-Canada Air Lines (TCA).
  • And what did "all up" mean? Simply this: an ordinary letter bearing the usual four-cent stamp for surface mail would henceforth be dispatched to its destination by air.
