Following the launch of domestic flights in Canada, Air Canada announced the launch date and route for its first-ever international route and it will be: Toronto – Las Vegas.
The carrier expects to offer the new route from January 19, 2023.
The new Canadian airline plans to offer non-stop international service from its hub, YYZ, to Las Vegas, Nevada, via Harry Reid International Airport (LAS).
Canada Jetlines says it will show the new route several times a week. Tickets can now be booked on the company’s website.
Operation of these flights is subject to final approval by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
As reported by Open Jaw on November 2, the US Department of Transportation has given the green light to Canada Jetlines to serve the United States.
The airline expects to grant FAA approval before the end of the year, the “last hurdle” before the official launch of international flights between the two countries.
Canada Jetlines will operate the new YYZ-LAS route with its growing fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft, which includes its recently announced second aircraft. The new device is expected to ship by December.
“We are very excited to launch Canada Jetlines international services with a route to the entertainment capital of the world,” said Eddie Doyle, CEO of Canada Jetlines.
“As we continue to expand our international network with our first route to the United States, we look forward to launching our services in a sought-after tourism and business destination like Las Vegas.”
The YYZ-LAS route will be Air Canada’s third non-stop service since it launched in September.
The airline launched the YYZ-YYC route, shown Thursday and Sunday from Toronto (YYZ) to Calgary (YYC). The company will also launch a route from Toronto to Vancouver in December 2022. The new route will be operated by an Airbus A320.
