Air Canada Adds and Restores Multiple U.S. Routes Next Summer

Starting next summer, Air Canada will introduce three new routes to the United States including flights from Toronto and Montreal to New York’s Kennedy airport, along with a new route between Toronto and Sacramento. Air Canada will also restore 13 trans-border services and increase frequencies on multiple routes.

“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 travelers flying internationally and strengthen our hub airports with more connection traffic.”

New Transborder Options

Air Canada will be the largest international airline serving the New York metropolitan area offering 39 daily flights offering more than 3,500 seats from six Canadian cities (Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and Halifax) to New York City’s three major airports.
