Air Canada is discontinuing its Windsor to Montreal route as the airline announces structural changes to its domestic, regional flight network.

The company announced Tuesday the indefinite suspension of service on thirty routes across Canada and the closure of eight stations at regional airports.

“These structural changes to Air Canada’s domestic regional network are being made as a result of continuing weak demand for both business and leisure travel due to COVID-19 and provincial and federal government-imposed travel restrictions and border closures, which are diminishing prospects for a near-to-mid-term recovery,” the airline said in a statement.

Air Canada expects it will take a minimum of three years before the airline industry recovers in Canada and the company says they will be considering further service suspensions over the coming weeks.

The Windsor to Montreal route was announced in April 2018 and non-stop flights began July 2nd, 2018.  Flights were timed to offer connections to and from Atlantic Canada and Europe.
