One day after resuming weekly flights out of Pearson Airport in Mississauga to a Dominican Republic vacation hot spot, Air Canada announced today (Nov. 17) it has also restarted service to 13 other sunny destinations.

Canada’s flagship carrier has resumed flights to West Palm Beach and Sarasota in Florida, Huatulco, Cozumel and Zihuatanejo in Mexico, Lima (Peru), Holguin (Cuba), Grenada, Panama City (Panama), St. Vincent and the Grenadines, San Juan (Puerto Rico), St. Kitts and St. Maarten.

On Wednesday, Air Canada resumed service from Pearson to Samana, Dominican Republic, a town “lined with pristine beaches,” airport officials tweeted.

Air Canada already offers weekly flights to various other destinations in the Dominican Republic, including Punta Cana, Puerto Plata and Santo Domingo.

Earlier this year, Canada’s largest airline resumed post-pandemic service to a number of other spots across North America and around the globe, including Madrid, Tel Aviv, Paris, Amsterdam, Lisbon, Vienna, Athens, Rome, Venice, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Budapest, Barcelona, Edinburgh and Manchester.

Among the North American routes that resumed service this year were flights to Baltimore, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Portland, St. Louis, Hartford, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Kansas City, Fort McMurray, Nanaimo and Gander.

Service to many of those locations had been suspended since March 2020, the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Air Canada made news on another front last month with its announcement that it’s adding 30 new electric-hybrid aircraft to its fleet that will fly out of Pearson Airport.

The ES-30 aircraft are being developed by Heart Aerospace in Sweden and are expected to take to the skies for Air Canada by 2028, Canada’s largest airline said in an earlier news release.
