Welkom to Amsterdam.

Flight AC838 links Canada and the Netherlands.

On July 3, 2000 Air Canada launched daily non stop Boeing 767-200 service between Toronto and Amsterdam, Europe's fourth largest travel market. To mark the occasion, renowned diamond cutters from Amsterdam and New York were on hand to certify that 'seeing is believing'.

Before boarding the flight, customers were offered a glass of champagne. Each glass contained a stone, in fact each contained either a cubic zirconia or a diamond. Our experts certified that two stones were diamonds and the rest were cubic zirconia. Two lucky customers boarded our flight with the real thing; authentic quarter carat diamonds, certified by our experts.
