Air Canada Begins PHX-YUL

Air Canada began service from PHX-YUL yesterday. The new flight will be seasonal and last through the end of April. The flight to YUL will be AC's third destination from PHX along with YYC & YYZ.

It should be interesting to see how this route performs. Arizona receives 600,000 Canadian visitors each year, but many are from the western provinces of British Colombia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.

However, apparently many Canadians have become frustrated with the tax situation and hurricane insurance problems in the state of Florida. The state of Arizona is hoping to capitalize on this by marketing Arizona and the new route in the eastern Canadian provinces with the hope of attracting an additional 400,000 visitors.

It was inaugurated with an E190.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's an A319!

Any word on the route's performance so far? How are loads for this weekend?

I wonder if this means we'll see a KPBG-KIWA flight on Allegiant in the not-too-distant future? Or perhaps KPBG-KPHX on Spirit?

Correct, they moved to T4 about 12 months ago when UA stopped handling their ground ops in PHX.

You may be right. For some reason I thought it was an Embraer.

It is an A319. AC operates the Embraer to YYC.

Why can't US and AC code-share? It makes so much sense!

It looked like Arizona had been annexed this morning. Just after noon there were 4 AC planes (they ran a charter) and a WS plane, taking up B26 all the way around to B23. A bit different.

Best of luck to AC on this route.

Yeah, why don't they codeshare with US?

Looking at the loads for the new YUL-PHX route, it would appear to be as successful as the PHX route, in other words .... very! PHX continually generates load factors in the 90s, and YUL-PHX is headed in that direction. So with such high, loads, there really is no need to codeshare, as then you end up competing with another airline for space on your own airplane!

AC, and US (and HP before that) used to compete on this route. I can't see them joining forces, just because US pulled out of the route. In fact it was US pulling out of the market that allowed AC to maintain an A319 on PHX across the summer where they used to use an E190, and allowed AC to increase to twice daily during the winter.

I don't recall either US or HP flying direct PHX-YUL.

I think you're referring to PHX-YYZ, which was axed by US last February.

For reasons known only to Airliners.net, every time I tried to add the YYZ to the YYZ-PHX of the message string it would not show up. Even though it showed up in the "edit" version, when actually displayed, it would show up as just PHX. So I gave up.

Yes, you thought right. Everywhere you see just PHX, should actually read YYZ-PHX.
