Air Canada will fly to Santiago in Boeing 777-300


As of December 1st, the company also will increase from five to seven its weekly flights between Toronto and Santiago, route that will continue to have a tag to Buenos Aires.


Air Canada announced an upgrade in the Toronto-Santiago de Chile-Buenos Aires route for the next summer season in the south hemisphere. According to information given by the company, starting in December 1st it will replace the current Boeing 767-300ER with a Boeing 777-300ER, with capacity for 349 passengers.

The Canadian company also informed that it will increase its frequencies, from the current five weekly to a daily flight starting the same date.

Unlike the past high season (2008/2009), where flights towards Santiago and Buenos Aires were dedicated, this year Air Canada will keep connecting Chile and Argentina with an offer of 42 seats in Executive First, 307 seats in Economy Class and a load capacity of 23.024 kilograms, which demonstrates the success that has had the route towards Toronto from both cities in high season, both in passengers and cargo.

Flights from Toronto will take off at 10 p.m. and will arrive to Santiago at 10:30 a.m., continuing towards Buenos Aires at 12:10. The return flight from the Argentine capital will be at 6:25 p.m., arriving in Pudahuel at 7:55 p.m. and take off towards Toronto at 9:35 p.m., arriving to the North American city at 6:20 a.m.

With this change, Air Canada will become one of the airlines with the largest seat capacity per flight operating in Santiago Airport, together with Air France, Brazilian TAM and American Airlines, all of them operating with Boeing 777 in the Chilean capital.
