Air Canada is adding two new seasonal summer routes, along with more service to major U.S. destinations from Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver.
New daily, non-stop services linking Montreal and Nashville, and Calgary and Boston, as well as the addition of a second daily flight between Vancouver and Newark, will provide travellers with more choice and added convenience when travelling transborder beginning in June 2020.
Mark Galardo, vice-president of network planning at Air Canada, said: “These new routes to Nashville and Boston, the only non-stop services available, are in line with our strategic long-term plans for global expansion. As the largest foreign carrier in the U.S., these destinations were chosen based on the strength of Air Canada’s North American network, allowing for quicker travel times between Canada and two of the fastest-growing economies in the U.S.”
And he added: “Customers will be able to take advantage of plentiful connecting opportunities between our extensive domestic and global markets.”
Between June 1 and Oct. 25, 2020, Montreal-Nashville will be operated by Air Canada Express on a 76-seat Embraer E175 aircraft featuring Business Class and Economy Class cabins. It complements existing year-round service to Nashville from Toronto.
From June 22 to Sept. 7, Calgary-Boston flights will be operated with a mainline Airbus A319 aircraft featuring Business Class and Economy Class cabins. These flights are timed to provide excellent connectivity to and from Air Canada’s Western Canada network. This seasonal route is in addition to existing service to Boston from Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Halifax.
The addition of a second daily flight between Vancouver and Newark for the summer season (operating between June 15 and Oct. 12) will enhance an important transborder connection as it is timed for optimal connectivity to Air Canada’s Western Canada network and flights to Asia.
