Air Canada Expands Service to U.S.


Air Canada will begin new non-stop services between four key Canadian hubs and 12 U.s. cities this summer.

The new transborder routes will introduce new destinations, such as Toronto-Washington-Dulles, Toronto-Salt Lake City and Vancouver- San Jose, CA. It will also create new city routings, such as Vancouver-Chicago, Montreal-Houston, Montreal-Denver and Calgary-San Francisco.

Benjamin Smith, president, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada, explains that beyond providing more lift for visitors to and from the United States, the new routes strengthen the carrier’s connections with major hubs (Houston, Denver, San Francisco and Washington-Dulles) of its partner United Airlines.

“These new routes will also support our international expansion by making it easier for international travelers flying to and from the U.S. to connect to Air Canada’s global network through its major Canadian hubs,” he says. “International travelers are increasingly finding that connecting through Canada on Air Canada is the most convenient way to fly to and from the U.S. and between the U.S. to both Europe and Asia.”
