Air Canada has inaugurated a new, non-stop service between Montreal and Sydney, Nova Scotia. The arrival of flight AC7998 in Sydney marked the beginning of daily service between the two cities until 26 October 2019. The flight will be operated on a 78-seat Q400 turboprop aircraft. This connection will allow for travel between the two cities, or travellers can connect onward to other destinations from across Air Canada’s network through the hub in Montreal.
“This link will also benefit the business community”
Talking about this new addition, Mark Galardo, vice president, network planning at Air Canada said, “With this service between Sydney and Montreal, we are further strengthening our presence in Atlantic Canada and offering an additional travel option to and from beautiful Nova Scotia.”
Running through the busy summer travel season and into the fall, this flight will boost leisure travel to the area, with attractions such as the nearby Cabot Trail and the beautiful scenery of Cape Breton Island. “This link will also benefit the business community as we’ve optimised flight times to allow for connectivity to and from Western Canada,” he added.
The flight also complements existing service from Toronto. “It will not only increase visits between our two cities, but Montreal is a portal to the rest of Canada and the world. At the moment, this is a seasonal offering, but opportunities like this enable us to showcase and enhance the potential of our market,” Cecil P. Clarke, mayor of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality said.
