Air Canada has announced its summer transborder schedule offering as many as 220 daily flights to 34 destinations in the United States.
The new schedule follows the loosening of restrictions on travel between Canada and the U.S., which will come into effect on Aug. 9, 2021. The new ruling will enable fully vaccinated Americans to enter Canada for non-essential travel, as well as remove quarantine hotel requirements and other restrictions.
“The easing of travel restrictions announced today by the federal government is an important step based on science, and we are very pleased to rebuild our Canada-U.S. network,” said Mark Galardo, senior vice president, network planning and revenue management at Air Canada, in a press release statement. “Canada and the United States share close ties and restoring air connectivity will contribute to both countries’ economic recovery.”
“Air Canada’s proud tradition of being the largest foreign carrier in the U.S. is reflected in our schedule which has been developed to provide a wide range of choices for customers in both countries, appealing to Canadian customers interested in traveling to popular U.S. destinations, and to U.S. residents looking to visit and explore Canada’s spectacular sights and hospitality,” added Galardo. “Our schedule also enables convenient onward travel through our Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal hubs to and from our global destinations. We are planning to restore services to all 57 U.S. destinations previously served as conditions allow.”
Air Canada has also developed a new digital solution that will enable customers flying from the U.S. to Canada to securely scan and upload COVID-19 test results via the Air Canada App. This will allow travelers to validate their compliance with government travel requirements prior to arriving at the airport.
