From Nova Scotia to New Jersey: Air Canada’s New Routes Further Connects Airline to the States

The approaching season will see non-stop flights served by Canada’s largest airline to states within the US in the hopes of strengthening the market shared between the two regions. Currently, Air Canada serves 51 US airports and is the foreign airline with the largest number of flights serving the United States.

Speaking on the convenience of the newest year-round routes, Air Canada’s Senior Vice President of Network Planning and Revenue Management, Mark Galardo, said in a statement:

“These routes will give customers in Atlantic and Western Canada more convenient options for flying to the U.S. They will reinforce the already strong links between Atlantic Canada and New York, while for customers in Western Canada they will provide more options for reaching destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean through United Airlines’ Houston hub.”

Starting 16 December, the arranged routes will operate as follows:

(AC8670) Halifax-Newark: 11:45-13:04, daily. (AC8669) Newark-Halifax: 13:45-16:35, daily.

(AC1300) Vancouver-Houston: 8:45-15:08, daily. (AC1301) Houston-Vancouver: 16:30-19:15, daily.

The Halifax-Newark route will be served by the airline’s Air Canada Express Q400 which offers an all-economy cabin, while the Vancouver-Houston route will be served by the Airbus A220 which offers business and economy cabins. The flight timings have been planned so that customers wishing to board connecting flights to other destinations have a greater variety of options.
