Air Canada announced some awesome new seasonal routes for next summer. Launching in June, Canada’s largest airline will provide daily flights between Montreal and Nashville (starts June 1), Calgary and Boston (starts June 22) and adding a second daily flight between Vancouver and Newark (starts June 15)

The Montreal to Nashville flight will be operated with an Embraer E175 with Business and Economy class cabins. Flights depart YUL at 18:50 arriving into BNA at 19:48. On the return flights leave at 8:25 and arrive back in Montreal at 11:51.

“This route strengthens our position in Nashville, one of the fastest growing markets in the U.S. It will appeal to Canadian customers who want to experience the
music scene in Tennessee and also allow Nashville residents to experience the vibrant summer season in Montreal, while also allowing for onward travel through our growing Montreal hub,” Air Canada’s Mark Galardo said.

For Calgary to Boston (might have to try this one out since it is Rewards Canada’s home town!) the flight is operated with a mainline Airbus A319  with Business and Economy class cabins. The YYC flight departs at 16:15 arriving into Beantown at 22:46. The return flight leaves BOS at 06:30 arriving into Calgary at 09:32.

“This flight is meant to connect Western Canada to Boston through Calgary, allowing for non-stop
travel to Boston where visitors can enjoy the charms of Massachusetts’ capital and largest city, while visitors to Calgary can take in the city’s culture and make a quick trip to the Rocky Mountains,” Mr. Galardo said.

Finally the additional seasonal flight between Vancouver and Newark will leave YVR at 13:55 and arrives into EWR at 22:05. The return leaves at 6:30 arriving back in Vancouver at 9:20.
