Strengthening Connections Across Canada

This expansion serves as a strategic bridge, connecting Montréal to Halifax, Toronto-Pearson, and Toronto-City.

The flights through Montréal complement the existing non-stop western service from Toronto-Pearson and Ottawa to each market, creating a comprehensive and efficient network.

This collaboration enhances the overall travel experience, providing passengers with a broader spectrum of choices and seamless connections worldwide.
