The new direct flight took off from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on February 22, and is scheduled to operate three times a week through to May 28. The Phoenix – Montreal flight is then expected to further resume on September 06 and continue through to May 2019.
Arizona Office of Tourism (AOT) accompanied nearly a dozen Arizona mayors, vice mayors, and tribal leaders on an economic-development mission to Montréal to celebrate Air Canada’s new air service. The Arizona delegation to Montréal, which also included representatives from Arizona Commerce Authority and Maricopa Association of Governments, commenced the mission with a panel discussion about increasing tourism between the two destinations.
AOT was joined on the panel by representatives from Tourisme Montréal, Québec Tourism Alliance and Air Canada.
