Ahead of the northern hemisphere winter season, Air Canada announced that it will strengthen its services from Quebec City’s Jean Lesage Airport (YQB) to beach destinations in Mexico, the Dominican Republic and will add routes to Florida, United States.
As of December 4, the airline will start operating twice weekly flights between Quebec City and Cancun, while as of the following day it will do the same on its route to Punta Cana.
On November 19, Air Canada will begin flying from Quebec City to Fort Lauderdale with four weekly operations, and on December 17 to Orlando, with one weekly operation.
“These routes will not only provide more diverse flight options for Quebec City residents, but will also strengthen our position in a growing market and better serve Jean Lesage International Airport, our long-time partner. Now that restrictions are easing, it’s time to start traveling again and book your escape to the sun,” commented Mark Galardo, Air Canada’s senior vice president, Network Planning and Revenue Management.
“We are delighted that Air Canada is resuming international flights from Quebec City to such popular destinations as Cancun, Punta Cana, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale,” commented Jean Lesage Airport (YQB) President and CEO Stéphane Poirier.
“Air Canada has not only decided to bring back some pre-pandemic connections, but has also chosen to invest in our market by increasing frequency and adding two new destinations to the schedule for winter 2021. Now that we can finally travel again, it is essential that people in the Quebec City metropolitan area can get out of YQB. This announcement is the result of a fruitful and beneficial collaboration between Air Cañada and YQB,” completed Stéphane.
