MONTREAL — Today will be a very busy day for Air Canada as it prepares to welcome over 178,000 customers, a new single-day record for the carrier.

“With the peak summer season in full force now and heading into the August long weekend, we are expecting to carry more than 178,000 customers today alone,” he said. “To put this accomplishment into context, it is equivalent to transporting more people living in the entire city of Saguenay, QC or in the area of Abbotsford-Mission, B.C., or in the whole province of Prince Edward Island all in one day.”
