The routes are part of a major expansion of the airline's Irish services.

Air Canada plans to launch new routes from the Republic next summer and to increase flights on existing services.

Montreal is a fabulous mix of European charm and North American attitude, and is well-known as a beautifully designed city.

"We are delighted at Air Canada to be announcing our new service from Shannon to Toronto for summer 2018".

We're already dreaming of all that Poutine.

The flights will be operated on Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft - the airline's newest single-aisle aircraft, with a Business and Economy cabin configuration.

They will also be resuming their seasonal Dublin-Vancouver non-stop service next summer on an expanded basis with up to five flights weekly between the two cities.

"We look forward to working closely with Air Canada, Shannon Airport and other tourism interests, to maximise the promotion of this new flight and maintain the strong growth momentum", said its CEO Niall Gibbons.

Air Canada is also enhancing its nonstop Toronto-Dublin service by increasing weekly frequencies to four from three, including daily service next summer, and transitioning it to Air Canada mainline from Air Canada Rouge.

"With 13pc of the Canadian population claiming Irish ancestry I have no doubt that Montreal will be a popular destination for both Irish and Canadian holidaymakers", he added. They will be on sale from September 19 and commence operation in June 2018.
