Air Canada is to launch daily non-stop year-round flights between Montréal and Houston, Texas, the hub of future Star Alliance partner Continental Airlines. The service will begin 30 November 2009.

Marcel Forget, Vice President, Network Planning, said, "We expect our new Houston service to be popular with business travellers as well as travellers seeking convenient access to the vast array of Mexican, Central and South American destinations offered by our future Star Alliance partner Continental Airlines."

"With our brand new United States departures hall opening today [Wednesday, 19 August 2009], this announcement is extremely timely and encouraging," said James C. Cherry, President and CEO, Aéroports de Montréal. "The new Montréal-Houston service fits in with Montréal-Trudeau's objective of becoming a more active hub in the Americas."
