Air Canada says it is boosting its Ottawa schedule by almost 60 per cent with flights to Calgary and Winnipeg now operating year-round, increased flights providing additional capacity to Halifax and Quebec City, and the addition of widebody service to Vancouver.

Additional schedule improvements include more flights to popular leisure destinations like Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Orlando, Cancun and Punta Cana this winter.

"Ottawa is an important part of Air Canada's network and in response to demand, we are growing our capacity to our nation's capital city by almost 60 per cent compared to 2023. We are very excited to add more flights to the rest of the country with the extension of key non-stop routes to year-round and additional capacity to other cities. We are also adding capacity to popular sun destinations and in conjunction with our joint venture partner United Airlines, increasing options for travel to and from the U.S.," said Mark Galardo, executive vice-president, revenue and network planning at Air Canada, in a press release.
