Air Canada to Launch Six New Transborder Routes in 2017

Air Canada will launch six new non-stop flights to the U.S. in spring 2017.

 Three of the routes, Toronto to San Antonio, Memphis and Savannah, bring new destinations into the airline's U.S. network, while the addition of Montreal to Dallas-Fort Worth, Vancouver to Denver and the conversion of the Vancouver-Phoenix route to year-round operation, will deepen Air Canada's schedule.

"These new routes will further solidify Air Canada's position as the leader in the Canada-U.S. transborder market and as the foreign carrier flying the most to the U.S.," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada. "Apart from linking Canada's largest cities with popular U.S. destinations, these new and expanded services will also serve to channel traffic to and from our domestic and international networks through our major airport  hubs, contributing to the success of our ongoing global expansion."

The new non-stop services will be operated by Air Canada Express starting in May 2017 and continue year-round, except for Toronto-Savannah, which will operate on a summer seasonal basis.

 All routes will be operated with regional jet aircraft with flights timed to connect with Air Canada's domestic and international schedule.

 All flights provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption, Star Alliance reciprocal benefits and, for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access at our hubs, priority boarding and other benefits.
