Air Canada Ramps Up Quebec Service

Air Canada has unveiled details of two new winter services departing from Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB) to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Flights to Fort Lauderdale will start on Nov. 19 and flights to Orlando on Dec. 17. Beginning Dec. 4, Air Canada will also be offering more flights to Punta Cana and Cancun.

Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management at Air Canada, said that: “We’re excited to be launching these two new routes to Florida from Quebec City, a first for Air Canada. We know that, for many Quebecers, Florida is a popular place for winter vacations.”

He pointed out that: “Punta Cana and Cancun are also among the most popular tropical destinations, and we are happy to be able to bring back these connections. These routes will not only provide more diverse flight options for Quebec City residents but will also strengthen our foothold in a growing market and better serve the Jean Lesage International Airport, our long–time partner. Now that restrictions are easing, it’s time to start travelling again and book your escape to the sun. We can’t wait to see you back on board.”

Air Canada flights out of Quebec City will be operated by Rouge on Airbus A319 planes that can accommodate 136 passengers.
