Starting October 4, 2018, CommutAir will operate five daily roundtrips from New York Newark and Washington D.C. to Montreal’s Pierre-Elliot Trudeau International Airport.
Montreal is CommutAir’s first international destination since transitioning to an all-jet fleet.
Over the next few months, Commutair will increase its Canadian footprint by adding Quebec City and Ottawa. CommutAir currently serves 35+ U.S destinations using the Embraer ERJ145.
“We’re thrilled to add international service into Canada and look forward to watching our route map continue its rapid expansion as monthly aircraft deliveries fuel our growth,” said Joel Raymond, Chief Operating Officer.
Founded in 1989, CommutAir operates as United Express and is majority-owned by Champlain Enterprises, Inc. and 40% owned by United Airlines, Inc. CommutAir operates ~1,000 weekly flights to 35+ destinations, using the Embraer ERJ145 aircraft, from bases in Newark, NJ, and Washington-Dulles.
