Air Canada now offering flights from Pittsburgh to Montreal

| Thursday, May 17, 2018, 12:03 p.m.

Daily flights from Pittsburgh International Airport to Montreal start Thursday.

Pittsburgh has not had nonstop service to Quebec's most populated municipality in 13 years.

Air Canada flights on 50-seat jets will depart Montreal at 2 p.m. and arrive in Pittsburgh at 3:40 p.m., then depart Pittsburgh at 4:15 p.m. and arrive in Montreal at 5:45 p.m. daily, said airport spokesman Bob Kerlik.

Montreal, which receives more than 10 million visitors each year, will be the second Canadian destination the airport serves.

Air Canada has long served Toronto from Pittsburgh and offers four flights a day. Porter Airlines ended service to Toronto earlier this year.

The airport provided the carrier $50,000 and waived landing fees in a two-year incentive deal, Kerlik said.

Airport officials expect international travel to grow this summer, according to a news release.

Condor resumes seasonal nonstop service to Frankfurt, Germany, on Friday, while Delta resumes seasonal service to Paris on Thursday. WOW will start offering flights to Iceland five days a week instead of four starting this week.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
