Air Canada today announced it is upgrading service and boosting capacity on key transborder routes from its Toronto and Montreal hubs.

"We are very pleased to offer customers travelling between Toronto and the cities of Nashville, Washington Dulles and Memphis an upgraded travel experience with larger and more comfortable aircraft featuring a choice of Business Class and wi-fi options on all flights. We are also adding daily frequencies on our Toronto to Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Austin routes and from Montreal to Baltimore," said Mark Galardo, Vice President, Network Planning at Air Canada (ACDVF).

"These changes are part of an ongoing transformation of Air Canada Express and customers will benefit from even more convenient schedules and enhanced onboard experiences as we further strengthen our North American network, optimizing connecting opportunities between our extensive transborder, North American and global markets," concluded Mark.

These enhancements are in addition to Air Canada's recent announcement it will launch new daily flights from Montreal to Raleigh and increase capacity by deploying larger aircraft with Business Class and wi-fi options on its Toronto to Raleigh and Charlotte flights.

Air Canada Express flights are scheduled for convenient, point-to-point travel as well as easy connections to Air Canada's extensive domestic and international network at its Toronto Pearson global hub.
