Air Canada resumes US flights, will serve fewer than half its destinations this summer
Air Canada has returned to select U.S. airports after a nearly month-long hiatus ahead of a summer travel push that includes new booking flexibility aimed at getting would-be flyers to buy tickets.
The Montreal-based Star Alliance carrier resumed flights to Boston (BOS), Chicago O’Hare (ORD), Los Angeles (LAX), New York LaGuardia (LGA), San Francisco (SFO) and Washington Dulles (IAD) on Friday, Air Canada said. The airline suspended all flights to the U.S. for the first time in nearly 80 years — except when all U.S. flights were grounded after 9/11 — due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition, Air Canada will roll out a summer schedule with flights to 97 cities around the world this weekend. The schedule features expanded domestic Canada options and both more U.S. and global destinations.
