Air Canada's new, non-stop daily service between Montreal and Raleigh, North Carolina kicked off yesterday.
Operated on a 50-seat Canadair Regional Jet, flights are timed to optimize connectivity from across Air Canada's network through Air Canada's hub in Montreal.
The new service marks Air Canada's 25thtransborder route from its Montreal hub.
"This new route complements our existing year-round service to North Carolina consisting of flights from Toronto to Raleigh and Charlotte, which also benefits from increased capacity in 2019," said Mark Galardo, VP, Network Planning, at Air Canada.
"With expansion into 29 new markets since the beginning of 2016, our Montreal hub offers convenient non-stop connections to more than 98 destinations in our global network. Customers returning to Raleigh from an international destination through Canada pre-clear U.S. customs without even picking up their baggage if they are connecting, saving significant time on their journey."
The new Montreal-Raleigh service is the only non-stop flight between these cities.
