Air Canada's New Double-Daily YYZ and YUL Route to JFK Begins in MAR

Air Canada is getting an early jump on next summer's travel with the announcement of three new U.S. routes, including service from Toronto and Montreal to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, with the airline now serving all three NYC airports, and Toronto to Sacramento as part of its trans-border summer schedule.

For summer 2023, Air Canada will also restore 11 suspended trans-border services and increase flights on 12 popular routes to the U.S. in rebuilding its global network following the pandemic.

"Air Canada is very pleased to offer customers the most choice of any carrier flying to the U.S. for Summer 2023, where we will operate more than 400 daily flights on 95 routes to 47 destinations. We are getting an early start with new routes to JFK from both Toronto and Montreal beginning March 26, and Toronto-Sacramento in June. As well, we will restore previously suspended routes and increase frequencies on existing routes as we rebuild our transborder schedule," said Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President of Network Planning and Revenue Management at Air Canada.

"Our U.S. summer schedule, which will complement our recently announced Canadian and international summer schedules, is designed to maximize connectivity within our network and offer the most seats on the most flights to the most destinations. Strengthened by our Transborder Joint Business Agreement with United Airlines, our schedule will also be attractive for sixth freedom global travellers flying internationally and strengthen our hub airports with more connection traffic."

New U.S. Services

Air Canada is offering more than 3,500 seats on 39 daily flights from six Canadian cities (Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax) into New York City's three major airports (JFK, Newark, LaGuardia).

New services to New York's JFK will begin 26MAR, with double daily service from Toronto and daily service from Montreal. Flights will be operated by Air Canada Jazz using an Embraer E175 aircraft with 76 seats in a Business and Economy Class configuration.
