Air Canada To Re-Establish Non-Stop Flights Between Pittsburgh And Quebec

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Nonstop flights from Quebec and Pittsburgh will be available again starting in June of this year.

The flights will run daily between Pittsburgh International Airport and Montreal-Trudeau International Airport in Canada.

The change is effective June 1, 2022.

Passengers can expect more changes from the airline as well:

"Air Canada will also upgrade Pittsburgh-Montreal to the larger Embraer E175, which seats 76 passengers," Air Canada said. "The E175s will introduce WiFi, personal in-seat TVs and Air Canada's business class product to the route. Business class will feature 12 first class-style seats at the front of the cabin in a 1-2 seating configuration, offering wider seats and additional legroom."

The PIT-Montreal flight route was originally established in 2018 but was shut down during the pandemic.

As the transmission of COVID-19 is less of a threat than in the past, Air Canada says it intends to resume operations in 11 cities and set up 41 new routes.
