Washington Region Connects With Canada - Air Canada Begins New Dulles SErvice to VancouverWith 171 weekly flights to five cities in Canada, the Washington region is more connected to Canada than ever before. Summer travelers can chose from 92 weekly flights from Ronald Reagan Washington National and 79 weekly flights from Washington Dulles International Airport.
On June 5, Air Canada began new daily service to Vancouver and added a second weekly flight to Halifax and a third weekly to Montreal from Dulles. Combined, Air Canada and U.S. Airways serve Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto out of National, and Air Canada serves Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and now Vancouver from Dulles International Airport.
"Canada has been a very important North American market for us, and we’re pleased to expand service even further," said James A. Wilding, President/CEO of the Airports Authority. "Service to Vancouver now provides this region’s passengers and shippers with a key western Canadian connection."
