Air Canada is also back on Calgary/Vancouver-Chicago (ORD).

YVR: 1 daily A319 + 4 daily UA A319/A320 mix
YYC: 2 daily A319/A320 + daily UA A320

Toronto-Glasgow is still a daily b762

Cheers Mark, there was some confusion to whether or not AC would be operating to GLA this summer, apparently the start date has been put back to June.

A few adjustments to the original posting:

YVR-KIX - Apparently one "liberated" A340 from the on again off again TPE route. Marketing claims that the 2 763's will be changed to 1 daily 343.

YYZ-KIN - In addition to JM daily codeshare service, there will be 2 supplemental AC A319's operating for a total of 9 weekly. Believe the flights are on Tu/Sa.

YYZ-MBJ - RESIII showing daily A319, but will be upgauged to daily A320.

YYZ-TLV - Current schedule for some time now is 5 weekly, not 4, increasing to daily. The current CDA-ISRAEL bilateral has a capacity (total seats) restriction per week. Believe AC is going to ask for an amendment/increase on this route. With the arrival of the A345's, and the pilots not having yet agreed to "ultra-long haul flying" (more than 19 hour duty days), a combination of the A343's and the A345's may be used on current long haul, heavy traffic routes such as YYZ-TLV & YVR-PVG.
Don't believe the Israeli government will allow for capacity increases due to protecionist policies over LY. Currently they are still embroiled in a bitter dispute with LH over capacity on TLV-FRA.

FLL -

Strong possibility of year-round service to FLL given the heavy concentration of Eastern Canadians who commute to North Miami/Hollywood/Hallandale/FLL/PBI.

Marketing has been asked for one daily YUL-FLL & YYZ-FLL (rerouting one of the current MIA flights) on a year round basis. Currently being reviewed.

GCM -

Currently being reduced from 3/4 weekly to 1/2 weekly for the summer schedule. Aircraft being reallocated to HAV for daily summer flights, which have been experiencing load factors in the mid 90's.

YYZ - PHX for Summer / 04 will change to early evening departure, and turn around as a red-eye flight.

SOUTH AMERICA - HOT HOT HOT!!

As the summer schedule tapers off, capacity will be shifted to South America. YYZ-SCL/EZE will increase to at least 5 per week from current 3.

The Destination Wish list is as follows in priority ranking:

LIM (Big push for this destination) will split frequency between YYZ & YVR
BOG
UIO
CCS

If true, they are probably looking at connecting Asian traffic. There is a decent amount of Peru-Asia traffic. Peru is probably the second largest market between South American and Asia, after Brazil.

YVR-LIM is a bit of a surprise...

BUT... CP used to fly this route 2 x weekly up until the mid 80s.

YVR-LIM-SCL-EZE was the route.

Would make sense to tap into the Asian <--> South America market via YVR.

I hope it happens.

Well LIM was also served from YUL.. as well as GRU/EZE/SCL etc.

Air Canada needs strong local demand from YVR to justify these flights, and unfortunately the local demand is tiny.

Rod,

Regarding GCM--I was a little unclear whether you are saying it is reduced to 1x or 2x weekly. AC have typically gone to 2x week in summer when demand falls off and then resume the extra flights in season.

Do you know if/when they are going back to wed/sun YYZ GCM? Thx.

What's the load factor on YYZ-GCM in high and low seasons? A friend of mine travels to GCM several times per year and the flights are never full. She is traveling on Z fares and never had problems to get on. Never more than 50 to 60 pax.....Including non-revs. Could it be another "prestige" route for AC?

Ladeco flew the 752 to YMX so it must have stopped somewhere en route for refueling. If memory serves, it was a YMX-JFK-MIA-SCL routing. I recall Ladeco fifth freedoms to JFK.





Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

It is true that Air Canada has applied for the Toronto-Bogota route 3 times a week. It would then continue to Lima.
There is no bilateral agreement between Colombia and Canada as yet, but that is expected to be cleared soon. Colombian national carriers have a right to express their views on the application. Even so, there is no reason why AC should not be able to start this route by the winter timetable as they have requested.
Bear in mind that there is a sizeable Colombian population around Toronto, and ever more Canadian business (and tourist) interests in both countries. Also, given the US requirements for visas and the difficulty in trying to obtain them, a direct flight would make life much easier for Colombians going to study or visit relatives in Canada. The choice is limited if one wants to do this route avoiding the US. Either through Mexico, or a through Cuba. The latter requires overnight stay in HAV!

What about summer YYZ-ATL? Is it still using 146s instead of 319s?

YYZLHR down to 5 daily from 6 (3 A333/2 763)
So this means no more 747 service to LHR?

YYZ-ATL is another of those routes with consistent trouble to fill planes, this is why the BAE is on this route currently.

Im sure this will be an EMB route in the future.
