Air Canada’s new nonstop domestic routes take off

MONTREAL — It’s liftoff for three new, nonstop domestic services by Air Canada.

The airline inaugurated its Kamloops-Toronto service on June 21 with the departure of flight AC1976. Today, Air Canada will inaugurate new nonstop seasonal services from Victoria to Montreal, and from Nanaimo to Toronto. All new services are operated onboard the airline’s leisure carrier Air Canada Rouge, which will be celebrating its fifth birthday on July 1.

“We are very pleased to launch the only nonstop services from Nanaimo and Kamloops to Toronto, and from Victoria to Montreal in time for the busy summer travel period,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Airlines and Chief Operating Officer at Air Canada. “The convenience of these new services makes it easier than ever for customers from other parts of our network to travel to beautiful British Columbia’s Vancouver Island and Thompson Okanagan areas. Customers from Nanaimo, Victoria and Kamloops now have the convenience of nonstop flights to Toronto and Montreal where unparalleled connecting options are also available throughout our far-reaching North American and global network.”

The new routes are part of Air Canada’s strategic expansion of 25 new routes being launched this summer.

Toronto-Kamloops runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays until Oct. 8, while Toronto-Nanaimo departs Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays until Oct. 9. Montreal-Victoria also runs until Oct. 9 on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
