Air Canada will launch year-round service three times per week between Toronto and Rio de Janeiro Galeão International airport on 11 December, 2014.

The carrier will operate on the route with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft configured with 24 business class seats and 187 economy seats.

“The service will complement our Toronto-Sao Paulo route, meaning Air Canada will now offer two destinations in Brazil, one of the largest and most vibrant economies in the world, and strengthens our position as the only carrier flying non-stop between Canada and South America," says Benjamin Smith, Air Canada’s executive vice-president and chief commercial officer.

No airlines are flying between Toronto and Rio de Janeiro today, Innovata schedules show.
