Air Canada has announced the introduction of new service between Vancouver and Mexico City in addition to the carrier’s resumption of daily service between Mexico City and Montreal. Twice daily flights between Toronto and Mexico City will also continue year round.
“Air Canada began serving Mexico City 46 years ago. Over that time, Canada and Mexico have built close ties not only through family connections and a vibrant tourism market, but also due to business connections – particularly with the creation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Air transport is vital to maintaining these relationships and Air Canada wants to ensure that there is sufficient capacity linking Canada and Mexico City to meet demand,” said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Air Canada.
Air Canada currently operates twice daily service between Toronto and Mexico City using a 120-seat Airbus A319. Beginning November 1st, Air Canada will launch additional daily service between Mexico City and Canada with the reintroduction of daily service to and from Montreal. On November 6th, Air Canada will begin weekend service (Saturday and Sunday) between Vancouver and Mexico City that will increase to daily service starting December 1st. All flights will be operated with Airbus A319 aircraft.
