ENCOURAGED by a 1984 increase in operating income compared with the previous 12 months and an 11% increase in passenger and cargo traffic after three consecutive years of decline. Air Canada is currently extending its international markets and now connects major cities in Europe as well as having inaugurated a service to Bombay and Singapore early this year. During May, the airline begins operating Boeing 767 aircraft across the North Atlantic which is also something of a ‘first’ in that it has been certificated by the Canadian MOT to operate this equipment on this route so long as the flight path is planned in order that the aircraft is always within the equivalent of 90 minutes, at single engine cruise speed, from the nearest suitable airport. This is the same guideline under which Air Canada operates the 767 within Canada and the USA and since the beginning of 1984, on overwater routes to the Caribbean.
