Following the Canadian government’s announcement of the opening of its borders with the United States, Air Canada today announced an extensive flight schedule that will include about 220 daily flights between Canada and the United States. The new flight schedule is in line with the abolition of travel restrictions between the two countries as of August 9, 2021, allowing vaccinated Americans to enter Canada for non-essential reasons as well, as well as removing quarantine requirements at the hotel.

“Relieving the travel restrictions announced by the federal government today is an important step based on scientific data and we are very pleased to rebuild the flight network between Canada and the United States,” he said. Mark Glardo, Senior Vice President of Air Canada. Gladardo added that “Canada and the United States share close ties and the opening of the skies will contribute to the economic recovery of the two countries. Air Canada’s proud tradition of being the largest foreign airline in the US is reflected in our schedule which is built to provide a wide range of flights for customers in both countries, and caters to Canadian customers who want to fly to popular destinations in the US and Americans who want to enjoy the spectacular views of Canada . Our flight schedule also allows for onward flights via Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal to our global destinations and we plan to restore our flight system to include 57 destinations in the US as far as conditions allow.

New: Update vaccination certificates through the app

Air Canada has developed a digital innovation through the Air Canada app, which allows customers flying to Canada to scan and conveniently and securely upload certificates regarding tests and vaccinations before arriving at the airport.

Air Canada is the largest domestic and international airline in Canada, and in 2019 was among the 20 largest airlines in the world. It is the flag bearer of Canada and a founding member of Star Alliance.

Air Canada is the only international network company in North America to receive a four-star rating according to British research firm Skytrax.
