At first I thought you must have been mistaken, as I have never heard of any AC SXM
service - But then I checked the schedule and you are right. And it's not a codeshare or anything like that.
I can only assume that it's a brand new flight. The current schedule just took effect on Friday, so the first flight sould probably have been saturday. (EDIT: Apparently it is next saturday, thanks FLYYUL.)
However, I have not heard any mention of this flight on these forums and there doesn't seem to be any kind of release on AC
's website. Very strange! I guess it is mostly a flight for vacation packages (very charter-ish although it is, of course, scheduled). I hope it is successful because that will certainly simplify getting to SXM
for canadians. (No need to connect in the US). Of course, there were alredy some charter services available with other carriers, but this is a welcome addition.
On the other hand I have just looked at the fares and they tend to be quite a bit higher than connecting with US or AA
