Just in time for the Canada-U.S. border reopening!
Throughout the summer, Air Canada flights to the U.S. are ramping up and there will be up to 220 daily cross-border flights between the two neighbouring countries.
The Canadian airline announced its new summer schedule on Monday, July 19, which coincides with restrictions at the Canada-U.S. border being eased and includes 55 routes and 34 destinations in the United States.
Mark Galardo, a senior vice president at Air Canada, said that the airline is rebuilding its Canada-U.S. network now that changes in border restrictions have been announced and is planning to restore service to all 57 of its destinations in America.
Flights are taking off from Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary, and the U.S. destinations include Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Honolulu, L.A., San Francisco, Nashville, Seattle, Phoenix, Maui, San Diego and Orlando.
Fully vaccinated Canadians and other eligible travellers are already allowed to skip quarantine when they fly into Canada as part of the travel rules that came into effect on July 5.
With newly announced loosened travel restrictions, eligible fully vaccinated Americans and permanent residents will be allowed to enter Canada for non-essential travel starting on August 9 without having to quarantine. Fully vaccinated international travellers will be able to enter Canada and allowed to skip quarantine as of September 7.
