Air Canada is launching seasonal non-stop service between its hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport and Atlantic City in New Jersey on May 22.
The Air Canada Express regional service, to be operated by Chorus Aviation subsidiary Jazz, will offer four round-trips a week from May 22 through September 7, 2015.
Jazz will operate the flights for the Air Canada Express regional-airline network using 74-seat Bombardier Q400 NextGen turboprop regional airliners.
The regional carrier has 21 Q400 NextGens in service and 13 more on order. All are in, or destined for, service on the Air Canada Express network.
“Atlantic City International Airport’s new seasonal Air Canada service to and from Toronto demonstrates the continuing passenger demand for travel to Atlantic City and the surrounding region,” says Thomas Bosco, Atlantic City Port Authority’s aviation director.
“It also is a reflection of the major investments put in Atlantic City International Airport in recent years, making this regional airport an attractive opportunity for carriers internationally, as well as domestically,” adds Bosco.
The schedule for the Air Canada Express service linking Toronto with Atlantic City will see flight AC7918 departing Toronto Pearson International Airport (IATA code YYZ) at 10:05 a.m. on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from May 22 and arriving at Atlantic City International Airport (ACY) at 11:35 a.m.
In the other direction, flight AC7919 will leave ACY at 12:05 p.m. on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from May 22 and touch down at YYZ at 1:44 p.m.
