INCREASED AND NEW SERVICES -- NEW ROUTES -- NEW AIRLINE ALLIANCES HIGHLIGHT AIR CANADA'S WINTER 93/94 FLIGHT SCHEDULE

 MONTREAL, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Canada's current winter schedule reflects the expansion of the airline's world operations that includes additional capacity on its U.S.-Canada and Canada-Europe services in addition to the introduction of new Asian destinations plus connection opportunities with its airline partners.
 Already offering Canada destined travelers from the U.S. the choice of more flights than any other airline, Air Canada has added flights onc?hedul ed outes from Newark, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles, in addition to bolstering its annual scheduled charter services from Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, West Palm Beach and Hawaii. The airline and its regional Connector carriers also serve Tampa, Boston, San Francisco, Houston, Hartford, Seattle, Portland, Ore., Baltimore and Cleveland. From the New York-Newark metropolitan area, Air Canada and its Connector carriers now operate up to 32 flights daily on services from LaGuardia and Newark airports.
 "This winter, we will pursue new market opportunities to broaden our entire network. We will make greater use of Air Canada's hubs and those of Continental, United Airlines and Air France and fine-tune our schedules to benefit from increased passenger feed and to ensure the possible connections at those hubs," said Douglas Port, Air Canada's vice-president, passenger marketing & sales.
 Air Canada inaugurated service to New Delhi, India on Nov., 5, 1993 with four weekly flights from Vancouver via London. Canada's largest carrier also serves Asia with three weekly flights to Seoul, Korea through a code-sharing agreement with Korean Air.
 On European routes, Air Canada will double its Toronto-Paris frequency to four in order to capitalize on its commercial alliance with Air France, and to benefit from the French carrier's extensive network beyond Paris. To this end Air France recently moved its operations at Toronto to Air Canada's terminal at Pearson International Airport. Earlier this year Air Canada moved its operations at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris to terminal CDG 2A, placing it adjacent to Air France. Air Canada will offer more flights to London and more one-stop services via Heathrow to other European destinations it serves including Lyon, Nice, and Dusseldorf. Air Canada introduced a new Toronto-Halifax-London "Daytripper" flight, making Air Canada the only airline with transatlantic daylight service from Canada. From Canada, Air Canada also operates flights to Glasgow, Manchester, Frankfurt, Vienna and Berlin.
 Air Canada will maintain a strong presence within Canada while keeping seat capacity flat. "We will maintain a high level of service in our domestic markets while continuing to operate more widebody service in Canada than any other carrier," said Port.
