6 New Trans-border Routes for Air Canada in 2017

Just in time for the holidays, Air Canada has introduced six new trans-border routes, adding new service to five U.S. cities and expanding winter-only service to Phoenix from Vancouver to year-round.

All flights will be non-stop and operated by Air Canada Express using regional jet aircraft. They will be timed to connect both within Canada as well as the U.S. using the Star Alliance network of flights. The new service will also give American travellers yet another option for their international travels, connecting through Canada’s hubs to their destination using Air Canada throughout.

All new service will commence in the spring of next year and allow for Aeroplan points accumulation. Star Alliance members can collect and redeem points with any carrier in the alliance.
