Building on Wednesday’s announcement that we will restore previously suspended service to Atlantic Canada and Quebec City beginning in June, today we are announcing further plans for domestic recovery with the addition of 11 new routes across western Canada.
The routes will offer new nonstop service for communities across Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario – helping to support travel and tourism in anticipation of summer demand.
As we look to the coming months with cautious optimism, we know our restart agenda will be pivotal to Canada’s economic recovery. Stimulating air travel benefits all Canadians and supports those hardest hit; with one in every 10 Canadian jobs tied to travel and tourism, the ripple effect benefits our whole country.
As a valued partner, we are hopeful that along with our return to Atlantic Canada and Quebec City, these 11 new routes will also be an important step in the recovery and growth of your business.
The new routes are as follows:
|Toronto – Fort McMurray||2x weekly (Wednesday, Sunday)||June 6, 2021|
|Kelowna – Saskatoon||2x weekly (Thursday, Sunday)||June 24, 2021|
|Kelowna – Regina||2x weekly (Thursday, Sunday)||June 24, 2021|
|Saskatoon – Victoria||2x weekly (Thursday, Sunday)||June 24, 2021|
