Air Canada has announced a new Summer route between Amsterdam and Montreal.

There will be five flights per week (Tue, Wed, Thu, Sat, Sun from Amsterdam, leaving the previous day from Montreal). The route starts on 2nd June and will run until 15th October.

Air Canada is using a modern Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

The Amsterdam flight departs at 14.00 so you should be able to connect from the UK on the same day if necessary, albeit there is always some risk in doing this.

Air Canada is a member of Star Alliance so this is potentially redeemable using Lufthansa Miles & More or Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles, amongst other options.

Our last review of Air Canada business class was back in 2015 when I flew a Boeing 767 with the old Virgin Atlantic Upper Class-style seating. (To be honest, given that I was travelling from Edmonton to London, it was a miracle that I could get a direct flight at all and I was happy to take whatever seat was on offer.) We’ve not had a chance to try the latest seat which is a more traditional herringbone style layout.
