Cross-border travel is back with a boom this summer as Air Canada schedules 4 new routes to the U.S. and reinstates 41 routes to 11 more cities.

The new routes are from Montréal (YUL) to Atlanta (ATL) and Detroit (DTW), from Toronto (YYZ) to Salt Lake City (SLC), and from Vancouver (YVR) to Austin (AUS).

About the new routes, Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President of Network Planning and Revenue Management at Air Canada said, “These changes will also grow and cement our position as the leading carrier of choice in the transborder market, with the most nonstop flying between Canada and the U.S.”

Air Canada’s new routes have been carefully scheduled to connect with Air Canada’s major international, long-haul, networks from its main hubs in Montréal (YUL), Toronto (YYZ), and Vancouver (YVR).

The news comes just days after Canadian ultra-low-cost carrier, Swoop, announced 5 new routes to the U.S. from Canada.

Let’s take a closer look at Air Canada’s new U.S. routes.

This means that United frequent flyers can use their MileagePlus miles on these new routes.

Hot Tip: You could be flying one of Air Canada’s new routes for almost free before you know if you know it if you make the most of the many ways to earn a bunch of United MileagePlus miles.

Not only that, Air Canada will be the only airline offering nonstop service between Austin (AUS) and Vancouver (YVR).

The routes will be operated by a mixture of the airline’s short-haul, narrow-body fleet.

Here are each of the routes’ start dates and days of service:

Final Thoughts

Air Canada is proving even more ways for U.S. citizens to get to Canada for their vacations for summer 2022.

From a weekend city break to Toronto to an immersion into French-Canadian culture in Montréal to an adventure in the great outdoors surrounding Vancouver, there’s a vacation for every taste.
