Air Canada has announced they will launch two new winter services departing from Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB) in Quebec to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Flights to Fort Lauderdale will start on November 19th and flights to Orlando on December 17th.
Starting December 4, Air Canada will also be offering more flights to Punta Cana and Cancun.
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."
"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.
