Air Canada Launches New Connections to Florida from YQB

Air Canada announced two new flight connections to Florida from YQB to Florida destinations, as well as increased frequency to popular Mexico destinations.

“We’re excited to be launching these two new routes to Florida from Quebec City, a first for Air Canada. We know that, for many Quebecers, Florida is a popular place for winter vacations,” said Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management at Air Canada.

“Punta Cana and Cancun are also among the most popular tropical destinations, and we are happy to be able to bring back these connections. These routes will not only provide more diverse flight options for Quebec City residents but will also strengthen our foothold in a growing market and better serve the Jean Lesage International Airport, our long–time partner. Now that restrictions are easing, it’s time to start travelling again and book your escape to the sun. We can’t wait to see you back on board.”

The updated schedule includes:

Connection Frequency Start Date
YQB – FLL Up to 4x weekly 19NOV
YQB – MCO 1x weekly 17DEC
YQB – PUJ 2x weekly 05DEC
YQB – CUN 2x weekly 04DEC

These flights will be operated by Rouge on Airbus A319 planes that can accommodate 136 passengers.

“We’re delighted that Air Canada is resuming its international flights from Quebec City to destinations as popular as Cancun, Punta Cana, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale,” said Stéphane Poirier, President and CEO of Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB).

“Not only has Air Canada decided to bring back some pre-pandemic connections, but it has also chosen to invest in our market by increasing the frequency and adding two new destinations to the schedule for winter 2021. Now that we can finally travel again, it’s essential that the people in the Greater Quebec City area are able to depart from YQB. This announcement is the result of a fruitful and beneficial collaboration between Air Canada and YQB.”

Air Canada also notes its new refund policy, which will apply to all tickets purchased. The airline will now offer a full refund based on the original form of payment, an Air Canada travel voucher or the equivalent in Aeroplan points, plus an additional 65 per cent if the airline has to cancel a flight or change the schedule by more than three hours.
