Air Canada and United Airlines recently announced their partnership to offer more than two hundred and sixty transborder flights between Canada and the United States in the summer of 2023. The move is expected to improve travel options for customers and is a strategic approach to two airlines to improve their market.
With a focus on opening more routes between popular U.S. cities like New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, and top Canadian destinations like Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver, this joint effort promises to make travel smoother flights for passengers.
Travelers can now make reservations well in advance for current or new destinations served by Air Canada and United Airlines while enjoying some additional benefits, including United’s MileagePlus loyalty program that Air Canada passengers will be able to access later this year.
