CALGARY, March 4

Air Canada announced today it is further expanding service from Calgary to the New York/New Jersey area with the launch of the only daily, non-stop service to Newark on June 16, complementing the carrier's daily, non-stop flights to New York's JFK Airport. Air Canada will launch its newest transborder flights to Newark with 120-seat Airbus A319 aircraft, offering a choice of Executive or Economy Class service. Tickets are now available for purchase.

"Air Canada's newest flights to Newark offer Calgarians another choice when flying to the eastern seaboard area," said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer. "We are delighted to launch additional service into the New York/New Jersey area, meeting transborder travel demand from the country's energy center."

Air Canada's flights will depart Calgary at 1020, arriving Newark at 1645. Flights from Newark depart at 1735, arriving Calgary at 2050. Flights have been timed for convenient connections to and from western Canada, including Saskatoon, Regina, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Edmonton and Vancouver.

With this newest flight, Air Canada will offer 41 daily flights from Canada to the New York/New Jersey area this summer.

Montreal-based Air Canada provides scheduled and charter air transportation for passengers and cargo to more than 170 destinations on five continents. Canada's flag carrier is the 14th largest commercial airline in the world and serves 32 million customers annually with a fleet consisting of 335 aircraft.

This will compete with CO's seasonal (summer) flight.


Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

Yes, but AC can feed a lot of Canadian origin traffic to that flight.

All the added E175 and E190's are freeing aircraft up for new routes. Watch for another western Canadian city to add a Newark service. It actually may be a moved flight from another airport in the vicinity to Newark, the decision hasn't be made yet.

As a sidenote, AC took delivery of their last E190 over the weekend. They now have all 15 E175s and 45 E190s, unless of course they order more.

If memory correct, AC operated YYC-EWR nonstop for a few years sometime in the late 1970s or perhaps early 1980s. They had previously moved all their NYC flights (then only from YUL and YYZ) from JFK to LGA. When they decided to launch the YYC nonstop service (which I believe originated at YVR and used a 727-200) they decided to operate ti to EWR instead of JFK. At the time I'm almost certain it was the only AC flight to EWR. They of course couldn't use LGA due to the perimeter rule.

They dropped that route at some point and then a few years later started shorthaul service to EWR from YUL//YYZ/YOW in addition to LGA. Then several years later when they decided to reinstate service from YVR and YYC to NYC (with separate flights this time), they decided to use JFK again which they hadn't served for quite a few years. Their daily YVR-JFK and YYC-JFK flights are now their only JFK flights.

Would AC keep JFK for just YYC service if that hapenned?

I'm actually surprised DL hasn't tried YYC-JFK on a 738. CX has YVR-JFK locked up, so hence the likely reluctance of DL on that one.
