MIAMI – Air Canada (AC) has the intention to revive and increase its US trans-border schedule, bringing support to the economies of both countries.

By publishing its revised summer schedule, AC has announced no fewer than 55 routes over 34 destinations for a total of 220 daily flights between Canadian and US city pairs. The new flights offer coincides with the travel restrictions between the two countries set to be progressively relaxed.

Under the new travel rules, to be applied from August 9, fully vaccinated US citizens will be able to enter Canada for leisure travel without having to submit to a hotel quarantine. Similarly, relaxed testing requirements for Canadians taking short transborder trips will be the norm with the possibility to carry out US pre-entry testing in Canada.
