Things are looking brighter for Canada’s National Airline, and many of us will be relieved. Air Canada has brought back service to 50 Canadian cities, and will fly 55 U.S. routes to 34 destinations this summer, penciling in as many as 220 daily cross-border trips. The service has already flown about 10,000 all-cargo flights and plans to make them permanent. As well, with help from the federal government, Air Canada has refunded almost $1-billion in airfares in the second quarter for cancelled trips, and expects to give back $200-million more in the third. The company will adjust its seat capacity according to demand, along with recalling employees and increasing the number of take-offs and landings. So it seems we can depend once again on the “flying maple leaf”.
