Air Canada will be launching a flight on its regional arm, Air Canada Express, from Montréal, Canada, to St. Louis, Missouri. The new route will begin on May 4, 2024, and will be the seventh international service from St. Louis Lambert International Airport.

New Flight

The new flight from Montréal (YUL) will operate once a day to St. Louis (STL) but may move to a seasonal basis depending on demand.

The route will operate according to the following schedule:

  • Depart Montréal (YUL) 6:30 p.m. — Arrive St. Louis (STL) 8:05 p.m.
  • Depart St. Louis (STL) 12:00 p.m. — Arrive Montréal (YUL) 3:23 p.m.

It appears that the aircraft will be overnight in St. Louis, likely with the same crew operating in both directions and laying over in St. Louis. The flight time in both directions is roughly 2.5 hours.

The flight will be operated by a CRJ-900, with 12 seats in business class and 64 seats in economy class. Interestingly, Air Canada has inflight entertainment screens for all cabins, so even on this small regional jet, you’ll be able to enjoy entertainment. Unlike U.S. carriers, the business class cabin features a full meal service on this type of flight, a far cry from what you’d find on other airlines.

St. Louis is a major mid-west business hub for several large companies, so it’s no surprise Air Canada is tapping into the market. Customers in both directions will be able to enjoy nonstop service, something that isn’t possible now.

Hot Tip:

Air Canada’s premium fares tend to be much higher than what you’d find on a U.S. airline, so it pays to look at award availability if you’re looking to sit in a premium cabin. Check out our step-by-step guide to the best ways to book Air Canada business class with points.

Final Thoughts

The only other Canadian service out of St. Louis is currently to Toronto (YYZ), so this additional service to Montréal in the Quebec province will provide an additional way to get to Canada. It’ll likely be popular with both business and leisure travelers alike!
