Air Canada will be cutting dozens of daily flights this summer because the airline is struggling with a list of challenges amid increased demand for travel. According to Air Canada it will reduce its schedule by 77 round trips or 152 flights on average, each day during the months of July and August.
Michael Rousseau the airlines president and CEO said “regrettably, things are not business as usual in our industry globally, and this is affecting out operations and our ability to serve you with our normal standards of care, … The COVID-19 pandemic brought the world air transport system to a halt in early 2020. Now, after more than two years, global travel is resurgent, and people are returning to flying at a rate never seen in our industry.”
An airline spokesperson, Peter Fitzpatrick said before these reductions, Air Canada was operating close to 1,000 flights per day. Most flights that will be impacted are out of its Toronto and Montreal hubs.
