Enthusing on the news was president, passenger airlines, Air Canada, Benjamin Smith: “Air Canada is solidifying its position among leading global carriers by becoming one of only a dozen airlines flying to six continents with the announcement of non-stop service to Casablanca, our first destination in Africa.
