Air Canada’s strategic partnership with Goldair Airline Services aims to enhance recognition, promote its presence in Greece and Cyprus, increase tourist flows between Greece and Canada and optimize Air Canada’s marine product sales.
“We are confident that through this partnership, Air Canada will be able to serve and support all its agency partners and corporate customers in Greece and Cyprus with the excellence that is expected from a top international airline,” Air Canada Regional Manager Stefano Casaregola said.
Air Canada’s daily flights from Athens to Toronto and Montreal will be operated by a Boeing 777 aircraft, serving 400 passengers for each destination. Air Canada offers a choice of a three-class cabin with the Air Canada Signature Class, the Premium Economy Class and the Economy Class. All flights are scheduled in line with connectivity to Air Canada’s extensive North American network, including 46 airports in the US.
