Air Canada Unveils Major Expansion On 12 U.S. Routes
AC has announced new non-stop services between 4 of its main Canadian hubs
and 12 U.S. cities beginning next summer. The new transborder routes will
introduce new destinations, such as Toronto-Washington-Dulles, Toronto-Salt
Lake City and Vancouver-San Jose, while also creating new city-pair routings,
such as Vancouver-Chicago, Montreal-Houston, Montreal-Denver and Calgary-San
"Air Canada is the foreign carrier operating the most flights to the
U.S., carrying the most customers and serving the most destinations. As such,
we are pleased to strengthen our market presence, particularly as the U.S. is
the top destination for Canadian travellers and Canada is one of the most
popular destinations for Americans. For those travelling onward in the U.S.
these new routes strengthen Air Canada's connections with major hubs of its
partner United Airlines, including Houston, Denver, San Francisco and
Washington-Dulles, giving customers more travel options and convenient
connections throughout the U.S. and Latin America," said Benjamin Smith,
President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada.
"These new routes will also support our international expansion by
making it easier for international travellers flying to and from the U.S. to
connect to Air Canada's global network through its major Canadian hubs.
International travellers are increasingly finding that connecting through
Canada on Air Canada is the most convenient way to fly to and from the U.S. and
between the U.S. to both Europe and Asia."
The new routes announced today will be operated by AC mainline, Air Canada
rouge and Air Canada Express aircraft. All routes will operate year-round
except where indicated by (*).
