Air Canada has inaugurated a new, non-stop service between Montreal and Raleigh, North Carolina.
Flights to Raleigh-Durham International Airport operate with a 50-seat Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ). Flights are timed to optimize connectivity from across Air Canada’s network through Air Canada’s hub in Montreal.
“Air Canada’s strategic global expansion continues with the launch of Montreal-Raleigh, the 25th transborder route from our Montreal hub, connecting the southern charm of North Carolina and French flavour of Quebec. This new route complements our existing year-round service to North Carolina consisting of flights from Toronto to Raleigh and Charlotte, which also benefits from increased capacity in 2019,” said Mark Galardo, vice-president, Network Planning, at Air Canada. “With expansion into 29 new markets since the beginning of 2016, our Montreal hub offers convenient non-stop connections to than 98 destinations in our global network. Customers returning to Raleigh from an international destination through Canada pre-clear US customs without even picking up their baggage if they are connecting, saving significant time on their journey. For eligible premium customers flying onward internationally from Montreal in Air Canada Signature Class, we offer an exclusive Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge to relax in and enjoy before continuing onwards internationally.”
