Air Canada to strategically increase capacity on transborder markets

Air Canada is upgrading service and boosting capacity on key transborder routes from its Toronto and Montreal hubs.

Air Canada vice president of network planning, Mark Galardo said: “We are very pleased to offer customers travelling between Toronto and the cities of Nashville, Washington Dulles and Memphis an upgraded travel experience with larger and more comfortable aircraft featuring a choice of Business Class and wi-fi options on all flights.

“We are also adding daily frequencies on our Toronto to Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Austin routes and from Montreal to Baltimore.”

“These changes are part of an ongoing transformation of Air Canada Express and customers will benefit from even more convenient schedules and enhanced onboard experiences as we further strengthen our North American network, optimizing connecting opportunities between our extensive transborder, North American and global markets,” added Galardo.

These enhancements are in addition to Air Canada’s recent announcement it will launch new daily flights from Montreal to Raleigh and increase capacity by deploying larger aircraft with Business Class and wi-fi options on its Toronto to Raleigh and Charlotte flights.

Air Canada Express flights are scheduled for convenient, point-to-point travel as well as easy connections to Air Canada’s extensive domestic and international network at its Toronto Pearson global hub.
