From December 11, 2021, the Canadian national airline will relaunch its Lyon-Montreal route with up to 5 flights per week from your airport.

The residents of the region will once again be able to discover Canada with the 51 Canadian destinations served by Air Canada or take advantage of the fast connections in Montreal for a romantic or family getaway to the USA and Mexico (New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Mexico City, Cancun, etc.).

It should be noted that the formalities for entry into the USA are carried out during the connection at the Montreal airport. Passengers departing from Lyon thus benefit from significant time savings* upon arrival at their final destination.
