Reading Time: < 1 minute

Air Canada plans to expand its US transborder network when it starts its spring schedule in May 2017, adding three new destinations.

All of the new services will be operated by Air Canada Express regional aircraft. San Antonio, Memphis and Savannah, Georgia will be new Air Canada destinations served from Toronto nonstop. San Antonio and Memphis will be daily services while Savanah will be 6X-weekly. Toronto-Savanah will be a seasonal route while the San Antonio and Memphis routes will be served year-round.

In addition, Air Canada will start daily Montreal-Dallas/Fort Worth service May 26 and 2X-daily Vancouver-Denver flights May 18. It will also convert its Vancouver-Phoenix route from a seasonal service to year-round service May 1.

Air Canada president-passenger airlines Ben Smith said the expansion ties into Air Canada’s strategy of channeling US passengers into its global network via its Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver hubs.
