This is the fourth consecutive month Air Canada has set new records system-wide for passengers boarded.

 

These strong traffic results demonstrate that we are effectively executing on both our international growth plan and on our Air Canada rouge leisure strategy.

 

We continue to build Toronto Pearson into a truly global hub for customers travelling between the United States and our international network, and on July 1 we inaugurated the only non-stop service betweenToronto and Tokyo-Haneda with convenient daytime flights within easy access to downtown Tokyo.

 

For the fifth year in a row, Air Canada was selected as Best Airline inNorth America in the annual Skytrax survey of global travellers.

 

I would like to thank our employees whose professionalism and dedication is recognized with this distinction that places us among the best airlines in the world.”
