Air Canada Adds Summer Non-Stop Flights to Three U.S. Cities

(Portland, Oregon) - In December, Air Canada announced new flights between the U.S. and Canada, hooking up Canadian cities to Boston, Nashville and Newark.

Company officials said there is a new summer route between Boston and Calgary, the only non-stop connection between these two cities, beginning in June. The flight will be operated with an Airbus A319 aircraft featuring Business Class and Economy Class cabins. This seasonal route is in addition to existing non-stop service from Boston to Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Halifax.

Air Canada also announced additional summer 2020 non-stop enhancements between the U.S. and Canada: a daily flight between Nashville and Montreal, and a second daily flight between Newark and Vancouver.

The Nashville-Montreal flights are timed to provide connectivity through Air Canada's North American and international network to destinations such as Shanghai, Tokyo, Paris and London. That new route will be operated by Air Canada Express on a 76-seat Embraer E175 aircraft featuring Business Class and Economy Class cabins. It complements existing year-round service from Nashville to Toronto.

"This route strengthens our position in Boston and the region, one of the fastest growing markets in the U.S.,” said Mark Galardo, Vice President of Network Planning at Air Canada. “It will allow visitors to Calgary to take in the city's culture while Calgarians can enjoy the charms of Massachusetts' capital and largest city. U.S. customers will also be able to take advantage of plentiful connecting opportunities to our extensive domestic and global markets."

Galardo said the Nashville addition will appeal to Canadian customers who want to experience the music scene in Tennessee and also allow Nashville residents to experience the vibrant summer season in Montreal, while also allowing for onward travel through our growing Montreal international hub.

“U.S. customers will also be able to take advantage of plentiful connecting opportunities to our extensive domestic and global markets," he said.

Air Canada said customers travelling to Boston or other U.S. destinations from an international destination through Canada pre-clear U.S. customs without even picking up their baggage if they are connecting, saving significant time on their journey. Canadian customers returning from the U.S. can clear customs in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Calgary without having to collect their bags until they get to their final destination.
