On Monday Air Canada announced that it will push forward with its summer flight schedule between the United States and Canada.
There will be roughly 55 routes and 34 destinations and up to 220 daily flights, coinciding with the loosening of Covid restrictions on travel between the two countries as of August 9th, 2021.
U.S. citizens that are fully vaccinated will be able to travel to Canada for non-essential travel.
Mark Galardo, Senior VP of Network Planning at Air Canada said Air Canada is very eager to restore service between the two countries:
"The easing of travel restrictions announced today by the federal government is an important step based on science, and we are very pleased to rebuild our Canada-U.S. network. Canada and the United States share close ties and restoring air connectivity will contribute to both countries' economic recovery. Air Canada's proud tradition of being the largest foreign carrier in the U.S. is reflected in our schedule which has been developed to provide a wide range of choices for customers in both countries, appealing to Canadian customers interested in travelling to popular U.S. destinations, and to U.S. residents looking to visit and explore Canada's spectacular sights and hospitality. Our schedule also enables convenient onward travel through our Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal hubs to and from our global destinations. We are planning to restore services to all 57 U.S. destinations previously served as conditions allow. We sincerely look forward to welcoming our customers onboard."
"We are thrilled with this announcement and look forward to welcoming back travelers from the U.S.," said Marsha Walden, President and CEO of Destination Canada. "From our lively cities immersed in nature to spectacular wilderness and coastlines to the unique mosaic of Indigenous and global cultures, every day in Canada offers a new adventure and a chance to reconnect with what's important. Team Canada is ready to host our American friends!"
