Air Canada Launches New Montreal–Amsterdam Route

Air Canada Launches New Montreal–Amsterdam Route

Air Canada will soon offer another direct flight from Canada to Europe. Beginning June 2, 2023, Air Canada will operate a direct flight between Montreal and Amsterdam on a seasonal basis.

This route complements the existing year-round service between Toronto and Amsterdam, and could be a good way to get a deal on a flight to Holland for the summer months.

Air Canada’s New Montreal–Amsterdam Route

As of June 2, 2023, Air Canada will fly between Montreal and Amsterdam five days per week. This route is scheduled to operate until October 14, 2023.

Eastbound, flights are scheduled to depart from Montreal on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Westbound, flights are scheduled to depart from Amsterdam on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

The flight times are as follows:

  • AC900 Montreal (YUL) to Amsterdam (AMS), departing 10:10pm and arriving 11am the next day

  • AC901 Amsterdam (AMS) to Montreal (YUL), departing 2pm and arriving 3:30pm

With a late departure time from Montreal, passengers travelling from other parts of North America should be able to easily connect to the flight. From Europe, the mid-afternoon departure means you won’t have to rush to the airport to catch a flight at the very beginning of the day.

The flight will be operated by the three-cabin Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft with Signature Class, premium economy, and economy cabins.

Naturally, Aeroplan is the program of choice for booking flights with Air Canada, especially since you’ll have access to every single seat that’s available on Air Canada flights.

The flight between Montreal and Amsterdam measures 3,340 miles, placing it in the first distance band on the “Between North America and Atlantic zones” table on the Aeroplan Flight Reward Chart.

In theory, this means that you should be able to book the flight for as few as 60,000 Aeroplan points in business class, if you’re able to find flights at the lower end of Air Canada’s dynamic spectrum.

In reality, you’ll be lucky to find a business class flight at under 200,000 Aeroplan points on this route, which is typical for direct flights between Canada and Europe during the busy summer months.
