Air Canada is continuing to build on its strategy to fortify its Toronto hub for transborder service with the launch of the only daily, non-stop flights to San Diego, CA and to Portland, OR.
With the introduction of today’s non-stop flights, Air Canada has now launched new daily service between Toronto and seven American cities this spring including to and from: Orange County (Santa Ana); Memphis, Tennessee; Cincinnati, Ohio; Portland, Maine and Syracuse, New York.
“The launch of Air Canada’s newest flights to these popular U.S. cities further solidifies our strategy of growing our largest hub at Toronto where our operations are centralized in a single terminal, offering an extremely convenient gateway to and from the U.S. and making it a global transfer point for domestic, transborder and international travellers,” said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer. “With up to 230 daily flights to 58 U.S. airports, Air Canada is the leading transborder carrier between Canada and the U.S. and the Number One foreign carrier flying to the United States – offering the most flights per day to more destinations in the U.S. than any other international airline.”
With the launch of the new San Diego and Portland routes, Air Canada offers up to 141 scheduled flights each day to 53 U.S. destinations from its hub in Toronto. In total, this summer Air Canada will operate up to 230 flights per day from six points in Canada and 58 destinations in the U.S. In addition, this summer Air Canada will also serve 30 domestic and 45 international destinations from Toronto. Air Canada has added four new international destinations from Toronto with the launch this summer of flights to Athens and Barcelona, same-plane year-round service to Brussels via Montreal, and beginning next week, year-round non-stop flights to Copenhagen.
