Air Canada will soon add another U.S. city to its route map.
As of March 28, 2024, Canada’s flag carrier will fly nonstop between its base at Toronto’s Pearson Airport (YYZ) to Charleston International Airport (CHS) in South Carolina.
Let’s take a look at all the details of this exciting addition.
Air Canada To Launch Charleston Flights in March
Air Canada will launch its nonstop service from Toronto to Charleston at the end of March 2024. The airline’s regional subsidiary Air Canada Express will operate the route with an Embraer 175 aircraft with 12 first class recliner seats and 64 economy seats.
The flights will operate once daily according to the following schedule:
- Depart Toronto (YYZ) 6:20 p.m. — Arrive Charleston (CHS) 8:38 p.m.
- Depart Charleston (CHS) 10:20 a.m. — Arrive Toronto (YYZ) 12:41 p.m.
Right now, the cheapest round-trip tickets we’re seeing on the route come to about $450 — we hope that figure will come down a bit as we get closer to this route’s launch date.
Not only will this flight be welcome news for residents of both cities looking for more nonstop flight options, but connecting Charleston with Air Canada’s network in Toronto is great news for Charlestonians, who will now have even more access to international destinations with just 1 stop.
Air Canada flies to dozens of cities across the U.S. and is a Star Alliance carrier, along with U.S.-based United Airlines. The airlines are a formidable force in transporting people from North America to the world, and vice versa.Hot Tip:

Charleston’s International Ambitions
Air Canada adding Charleston to its route map means the South Carolina airport will once again have nonstop international service. British Airways briefly served the airport nonstop from London-Heathrow (LHR), but that route was suspended in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and has yet to return.
While flights to Toronto may not be as thrilling as a nonstop transatlantic flight from the airport, it’s still an overwhelmingly positive addition to the airport’s route network.
Air Canada will begin flying nonstop between Toronto and Charleston, South Carolina, in March 2024. This is great news for residents of Canada’s largest city who’d like to visit the ever-more-popular coastal Southern city and even better news for those who live in and around Charleston who will soon have access to Air Canada’s extensive network from its largest hub.
