Air Canada today announced a new summer route between YYC-BOS, the only non-stop connection between these two cities, beginning in JUN.
Air Canada has announced an expanded summer network out of Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver.
The new routes and additional flights include:
new daily, non-stop services between YUL-BNA
new daily, non-stop services between YYC-BOS
the addition of a second daily flight between YVR-EWR
"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," said Mark Galardo, Vice President of Network Planning at Air Canada.
"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. Customers will be able to take advantage of plentiful connecting opportunities between our extensive domestic and global markets."
Montreal-Nashville (operating 1JUN to 25OCT, 2020)
The new route 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 from YYZ.
The flights are timed to provide connectivity through AC's North American and international destinations such as Shanghai, Tokyo, Paris and London.
Calgary-Boston (operating 22JUN to 7SEP, 2020)
The flight will be operated with a mainline Airbus A319 aircraft featuring Business Class and Economy Class cabins.
The flights are timed to provide connectivity to and from AC's Western Canada network. This seasonal route is in addition to existing service to Boston from YVR, YYZ, YUL, YOW and YHZ.
Vancouver-Newark (operating 15JUN and 12OCT, 2020)
The addition of a second daily flight between YVR and EWR for the summer season will enhance a transborder connection as it is timed for optimal connectivity to AC's Western Canada network and flights to Asia.
Travelling Transborder With AC
Customers travelling to Nashville, Boston or Newark from an international destination through Canada pre-clear U.S. customs without picking up their baggage if they are connecting.
Canadian customers returning from the U.S. can clear customs at YVR, YYZ, YUL and YYC without having to collect their bags until they get to their final destination.
