"We are delighted customers are choosing Air Canada in record numbers for their travel plans, where we carried more than 5.2 million customers in a record setting July," said Benjamin Smith, President, Airlines and Chief Operating Officer at Air Canada. "This is a new single day achievement for Air Canada, and it surpasses our previous single day record set earlier this summer."

The record number is equivalent to transporting more people than live in the entire city of Saguenay, QC, or in the area of Abbotsford-Mission, BC or in the whole province of Prince Edward Island, all in one day.

"We look forward to welcoming our customers onboard, and I thank our 30,000 employees for their professionalism and care in transporting people safely to their destinations during this busy travel season," Mr. Smith added.
