Air Canada is to launch non-stop flights between its Toronto Pearson hub and Atlantic City, NJ.

The seasonal service, to be flown by Air Canada Express, operated by Jazz, will offer four return trips a week from 22 May to 7 September 2015, using a 74-seat Bombardier Q-400 aircraft.

Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada, said, "Air Canada is pleased to be adding Atlantic City to its already extensive U.S. network. This new route will enable our customers to conveniently travel non-stop to Atlantic City where they can enjoy its famed boardwalk, beaches and casinos. It will also provide Atlantic City a direct connection to Air Canada's Toronto global hub. The flights will be conveniently timed to link with Air Canada's extensive network for connections to and from the rest of Canada and beyond with customers eligible to accumulate and redeem Aeroplan miles."

John Palmieri, Executive Director of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, added, "The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority welcomes Air Canada and looks forward to a strong and lasting relationship. Our organization understands the importance of increased air travel to create positive impact in the region, and the CRDA Board is fully on board with making strategic investments to expand service at the Atlantic City Airport. We are optimistic about the opportunity this provides."
