Of course during the week I decide to take vacation, Air Canada and other airlines announce a bunch of new routes from Canadian cities. All the new routes had two main focuses, Sun Destinations and Star Alliance connections. So here I am playing catch up on the new routes.
The new Montreal-Houston route announced by Air Canada on August 19th, is a Star Alliance connection. Houston is a large hub for Continental Airlines which is joining Star Alliance on Oct 27. This new daily route starts on November 30th and is timed to arrive into Houston to connect to Continental flights across the southern U.S., Mexico, Central and South America.
