Air Canada resumes Miami-Vancouver route after 18 years
Miami Airport for Air Canada launch to Vancouver
Miami International Airport (MIA) has welcomed the return of Air Canada’s three times weekly service to Vancouver. The route, which was last served in 2004, gives MIA its longest North American route and nonstop flights to its largest unserved North American market.
Officials from Miami-Dade County and Air Canada celebrated the route launch with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and refreshments, including a spectacular route launch cake, for the inaugural passengers. Air Canada is operating the new service with 737 MAX 8 aircraft.
Vancouver joins Montreal and Toronto as MIA’s third Canadian nonstop destination and provides travellers with a quick one-stop connection to long-haul destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, and Hong Kong.
Booking data shows Vancouver generated 132,000 connecting passengers to the South Florida area in 2019. Additionally, Canada was MIA’s eighth-busiest international market before the pandemic, with more than 860,000 passengers annually.
