MONTREAL — Air Canada will be expanding its North-American network this summer with the launch of new service on four trans-border and three domestic routes, as well as the restoration of 41 North-American routes.
Specifically, new services will be launching to the U.S. from Montreal to Atlanta and Detroit, Toronto to Salt Lake City, Utah and Vancouver to Austin. Within Canada, three new routes will begin between Montreal and Ganger, Nfld., Calgary and Fort St John, B.C., and Vancouver and Halifax. The service restoration on 41 North American routes include 13 routes from Toronto, nine from Montreal, five from Ottawa, five from Vancouver, four from Calgary, three from Halifax and two from Edmonton.
“Canadians are ready to travel, and we’re excited to be offering a very significant growth in our schedule this summer. With our recovery accelerating and North-American flying reaching 90 per cent of pre-pandemic levels this summer, we are offering more options across the continent, including seven new city pairs from our Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver hubs, and the resumption of 41 suspended or previously announced new routes,” says Mark Galardo, senior vice-president, Network Planning and Revenue Management at Air Canada. “These changes will also grow and cement our position as the leading carrier of choice in the trans-border market, with the most non-stop flying between Canada and the U.S. and as the foreign carrier with the most service to the U.S. Moreover, our revitalized North-American network, designed to connect easily with our global network, gives customers by far the widest choice of routings and destinations of any Canadian carrier this summer.”
In addition, Air Canada has opened its 23 Maple Leaf Lounges, with new order-from-seat technology. It has also introduced a variety of touchless airport services for check-in and boarding processes.
