“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,”
said Benjamin Smith, president, passenger Airlines at Air Canada. “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 per cent 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.”
“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. The aircraft features a personal seatback in-flight entertainment system and a power outlet available at every seat throughout the aircraft.
Flights are timed for convenient connections through Air Canada’s extensive international network and provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption and, for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access in Montreal, priority boarding and other benefits.
