From the Air Canada press release:
Air Canada expands service to seven more American cities; pursues growth strategy for Toronto hub
New flights fortify airline’s position as the leading transborder carrier
MONTREAL, Jan. 27 /CNW Telbec/ – Air Canada today announced new services for seven more American cities, fortifying its Toronto hub and strengthening its position as the leading transborder carrier with the most daily flights between Canada and the U.S. of any airline.
“This additional service to seven more U.S. cities further solidifies Air Canada’s position as the leading transborder carrier between Canada and the U.S. and the Number One foreign carrier flying to the United States — offering the most flights per day to more destinations in the U.S. than any other international airline,” said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. “It also demonstrates our commitment to drive Toronto’s growth as a hub. Air Canada is already the leading carrier at Toronto’s Lester B. Pearson International Airport. Centralized in a single terminal, Air Canada’s Toronto hub is the most convenient gateway to and from the U.S., offering multiple connection options for passengers travelling anywhere in our global network. Our strategy is to leverage our hub to make it a global transfer point for domestic, transborder and international travellers.”
This spring, Air Canada will offer new daily service between Toronto and seven more American cities including: Orange County (Santa Ana) and San Diego, California; Portland, Oregon; Memphis, Tennessee; Cincinnati, Ohio; Portland, Maine; and Syracuse, New York. Flights will be non-stop and conveniently timed for connections with flights on Air Canada’s extensive domestic and international network. Customers can earn and redeem Aeroplan miles on each route.
