Launch of the first flight on Air Canada's Amsterdam-Montreal route

Launch of the first flight on Air Canada’s Amsterdam-Montreal route

Air Canada accomplished its first flights utilizing a Boeing 787 Dreamliner with sustainable jet fuel from Montreal to Amsterdam. Air Canada is advancing initiatives in its Climate Action Plan in conjunction with the opening of its second route from Amsterdam to Canada by extending its collaboration with Neste, a producer of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in Europe, to include Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel on some of its flights at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

When compared to using conventional jet fuel, the usage of SAF might cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 80%* during the fuel’s lifetime. This decrease is estimated using a comprehensive lifecycle analysis. In addition to our year-round flights between the Dutch capital and Toronto, we are excited to introduce our new, non-stop service between Amsterdam and Montreal for the summer of 2023.

The beginning of our flights between Montreal and Amsterdam also signifies the beginning of our SAF supply in Europe and highlights the usefulness of this time-tested technology. We believe Canada should invest in SAF manufacture and urge the government and other stakeholders to give it top priority, together with the whole Canadian aviation sector, said Michael Rousseau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Canada.

“For Air Canada, the expansion of our partnership with Neste to supply our first flight from Europe with SAF means that we are taking it a step further and offering more SAF through our Leave Less Travel Programme on a book and claim basis, further supporting our journey towards our ambitious 2050 net zero emissions goal,” Mr. Rousseau said in his conclusion.

An Air Canada Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft with three service classes flies between Montreal and Amsterdam. The five times weekly service will supplement Air Canada’s daily service between Toronto and Amsterdam in the summer of 2023. Customers on both sides of the Atlantic have easy options to visit and experience each other’s continents thanks to up to twice as many flights per day operating between Canada and Amsterdam from two of Air Canada’s international hubs.
