Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 18 May 2010

Air Canada has launched new twice-daily, year-round flights to four American cities - Memphis, Cincinnati, Syracuse and Portland, Maine, further fortifying its Toronto hub. The four new U.S. transborder routes are:

Memphis, Tenn operated by Air Canada Jazz with CRJ
Cincinnati, Ohio operated by Air Canada Jazz with CRJ
Portland, Maine operated by Air Georgian with Beech1900D
Syracuse, N.Y. operated by Air Georgian with Beech1900D

Last month, Air Canada launched new services from Toronto to Orange County, CA, and on 17 June 2010 will follow up with new services between Toronto and San Diego, CA, and Portland, Ore.

 In addition, Air Canada will launch in November the only Montreal-Phoenix non-stop flights and will double to twice daily its Toronto-Phoenix service next winter. Air Canada is also increasing its Toronto-California service by 51% this summer, including the introduction of Boeing 767-300 ER service on select flights between Toronto and Los Angeles featuring its industry-leading Executive First lie flat suites.

"We offer the most flights per day to more destinations in the U.S. than any other international airline and the fastest elapsed travel times between the U.S. north-east and Asia," said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. "It also underscores our commitment to drive the growth of our Toronto hub.. Air Canada is already the leading carrier at Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport. Centralized in a single terminal with three Maple Leaf Lounges, Air Canada's Toronto hub offers streamlined connections and is the most convenient gateway to and from the U.S., with multiple travel options for passengers flying anywhere in our global network. We are leveraging our hub to make it a global transfer point for domestic, transborder and international travellers."

Air Canada is also adding four new international destinations from Toronto this summer. The airline will begin flying to Athens, Barcelona, and Copenhagen, and offer same-plane, direct service to Brussels through Montreal. Earlier this year, in March, it launched a new Calgary-Narita non-stop service.

Air Canada, along with Air Canada Jazz and its Tier Three partners, will offer this summer up to 144 scheduled flights each day to 51 U.S. destinations from its hub in Toronto. In total, this summer Air Canada will operate up to 233 flights per day from six points in Canada to 55 destinations in the U.S. In addition, this summer Air Canada will also serve 30 domestic and 46 international destinations from Toronto.
