Air Canada launched daily flights to San Diego from Calgary on Friday (May 15th).
The new route, which is designed to accommodate the existing service between Vancouver and the Californian city, is scheduled to allow passengers to make onward connections to Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg and Toronto.
Marcel Forget, Air Canada’s vice president of network planning, said the airline was "delighted" to launch new flights to the west coast of the US.
"We expect our new San Diego service to be popular with business travellers as well as both Canadian and American vacationers seeking the vast array of leisure opportunities offered in Alberta and in southern California," he commented.
Flights will depart Calgary at 12:55 (local time) and arrive in San Diego at 15:00 (local time). Return flights will take off from California at 11:55 and land in Canada at 16:05.
Air Canada, which serves 33 million passengers every year, flies to over 170 destinations on five continents.
Earlier this month, the airline launched new flights to Sydney, Nova Scotia from Toronto.
