Cross border travel is set to see Air Canada’s A220 flying to the United States in 2020. However, the Canadian flag carrier is also looking to boost its services with other aircraft next year. It will launch new routes to Nashville and Boston. This is in addition to doubling the frequency of flights between Vancouver and Newark. All three flights are set to launch in half a years time. Interestingly, all of the flights require an overnight stop.
