Greece gains broader access to the American tourist market with the resumption of the direct flights of Air Canada to Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” for the new tourism season, as there were no direct flights from Canada to the Greek capital until recently.
The direct Air Canada flights will depart from Montreal and Toronto for Athens International Airport (AIA) every day. The first direct flight from Toronto arrived in Athens on 27 March and that from Montreal arrived at AIA on 28 March. Under the existing schedule, the flights will run through 26 November 2023.
As Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias noted during an official event at AIA, the Canadian market was among the top 10 for AIA in 2022 and one of the most important for the airport, the city, and the country.
