“The new flights to Montréal are a welcome addition to our international route offerings,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO. “Montréal has been our largest and most requested market within Canada and serves as a connection to other Canadian cities and beyond. I would like to congratulate Air Canada on their expansion at SAN.”

“With customer interest in travel resuming post pandemic, we are thrilled to launch our services connecting San Diego to our Montréal hub, complementing our flights from San Diego to Vancouver and Toronto,” said Lisa Pierce – Vice President, Canada & USA Sales for Air Canada.

“I welcome back the seasonal nonstop flights to Vancouver on WestJet,” said Kimberly Becker, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority President and CEO. “This is an important route as it allows travelers to visit western Canada but also connect to other North American routes across Canada. We appreciate WestJet resuming service to Vancouver.”
