Air Canada launches non-stop Montreal/San Juan route

Air Canada is offering seasonal service between Montreal and San Juan through April.

Air Canada recently inaugurated a new non-stop service between Montreal and Puerto Rico, marking the beginning of the seasonal service this winter offering weekly flights from Canada to Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport.

“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,” he said.

“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 of Aéroports de Montréal. “This new service will offer one more option to our passengers seeking to diversify their sun destinations.”

The new service will offer flights on Saturdays until April 22, 2017.

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.
