Air Canada carries a record 130,000 in a single day

MONTREAL — Air Canada achieved a single-day record for passengers carried on Friday, with nearly 138,000 customers boarding its aircraft around the world.

“The peak summer season is underway and heading into the Canada Day weekend we expect to carry nearly 138,000 customers. To put this in context, it is equivalent to transporting in a single day the population of an entire mid-size Canadian city such as Abbotsford, BC, St. Catharines, ON, or Levis, QC. We are very pleased that customers continue to choose and trust Air Canada for their holiday travel and our top priority is to transport everyone safely,” said Klaus Goersch, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Air Canada.
