Air Canada to launch two new Florida routes out of YQB this winter

MONTREAL — Air Canada has announced two brand new Florida routes out of Quebec City: Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, both starting this winter.

Flights to Fort Lauderdale will kick off Nov. 19 out of Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB), while service to Orlando will begin Dec. 17. Starting Dec. 4, Air Canada will also start offering more flights to Punta Cana and Cancun. 

“We’re excited to be launching these two new routes to Florida from Quebec City, a first for Air Canada,” said Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management at Air Canada. “Punta Cana and Cancun are also among the most popular tropical destinations, and we are happy to be able to bring back these connections. These routes will not only provide more diverse flight options for Quebec City residents but will also strengthen our foothold in a growing market and better serve the Jean Lesage International Airport, our long–time partner. Now that restrictions are easing, it’s time to start travelling again and book your escape to the sun. We can’t wait to see you back on board.”

Here is the full schedule: 

Connection Frequency Start date

Up to 4 x weekly November 19

Coinciding with today’s news, Air Canada Vacations also unveiled its 2021/2022 winter sun flights from Quebec, which includes these two new Florida flights as well as a full flying program to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Air Canada flights out of Quebec City will be operated by Rouge on Airbus A319 planes that can accommodate 136 passengers. 

Air Canada’s new refund policy will apply to all tickets purchased. The airline offers a full refund based on the original form of payment, an Air Canada travel voucher or the equivalent in Aeroplan points, plus an additional 65% if the airline has to cancel a flight or change the schedule by more than three hours.
