Air Canada launches new non-stop service between Montreal and San Juan, Puerto Rico
MONTREAL, Canada — Air Canada on Saturday inaugurated a new non-stop service between Montreal and Puerto Rico. The morning departure of Air Canada flight AC958 marks the beginning of weekly flights from Montreal to San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, which will operate as a seasonal service this winter.
“This new route from Montreal will make it easier for customers to travel to Puerto Rico from eastern Canada and complements our existing twice-weekly services between Toronto and San Juan. It also strengthens Air Canada’s Montreal hub, which is playing a significant strategic role in our ongoing global expansion. Our capacity in Montreal is up nearly 20 percent over the last two years and in the past year alone we have launched or announced 13 new destinations from the city, including Shanghai, Algiers, Lyon, and Marseille,” said Benjamin Smith, president, passenger airlines at Air Canada.
“I would like to congratulate and thank Air Canada for adding San Juan, Puerto Rico, to its already impressive list of non-stop destinations served from Montreal,” said James Cherry, president and chief executive officer of Aéroports de Montréal. “This new service will offer one more option to our passengers seeking to diversify their sun destinations.”
Air Canada’s Montreal-San Juan flights will operate with a 146-seat Airbus A320 featuring two classes of service with 14 Business Class seats and 132 seats in Economy Class.
Air Canada is Canada’s largest domestic and international airline serving more than 200 airports on six continents.
