Kelowna to Montreal flight amongst Air Canada service cuts

Air Canada cuts hit YLW

Air Canada says it will make "meaningful reductions" to its flight schedule in July and August as airports face lengthy delays and cancellations amid a post-pandemic travel surge.

A company spokesman says the changes on average will affect 154 flights per day, mainly from its Toronto and Montreal hubs.

The Kelowna to Montreal route is being suspended, alongside flights from Montreal to Pittsburgh and Baltimore. One from Toronto to Fort McMurray, Alta. has also been suspended.

Air Canada says the changes will mainly affect evening and late-night flights by smaller aircraft, on transborder and domestic routes.

Air Canada says before the changes it operated on average about 1,000 flights a day.
