Air Canada Encouraging Toronto Stopovers


Air Canada customers travelling between the US and Europe or Asia via the airline’s Toronto Pearson hub now have an opportunity to pause their journey in the city for up to one week with no stopover fee.

This special offer, developed with the support of Tourism Toronto, is designed to encourage US-originating international customers to take advantage of their connection to experience Canada’s largest city.

“As Air Canada’s global hub, Toronto Pearson is quickly growing in popularity as the most efficient connecting point for US-originating travellers to Europe or Asia. But in addition to being extremely convenient for transiting international travellers, Toronto makes an ideal city getaway and for those who have the time, as there is a tremendous amount to see and do in one of the world’s most multicultural and vibrant cities. This is why we are pleased to offer our US-originating customers flying on international connections with an opportunity to stop over in Toronto for up to a week at no extra cost to their Air Canada ticket so that they can explore and enjoy its diverse attractions,” said Benjamin Smith, president, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada.

The airline’s extended stopover offer is available to US originating international customers connecting through Toronto while travelling from more than 50 US cities to Europe or Asia and can be applied to either the outbound or inbound portion of the trip. The offer is valid for flights operated by Air Canada, Air Canada Express or Air Canada rouge.
