Air Canada today announced it will begin nonstop service between Vancouver and Santa Ana in Orange County, California starting Oct. 2, 2021. Flights will initially be four times per week, with plans to increase to daily service in 2022.

The addition of Orange County to its U.S. network follows Air Canada’s recent announcement of new transborder routes from Quebec City to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood that begin this November. By this fall, Air Canada will offer up to 240 daily flights to and from 35 destinations in the U.S. The airline plans to restore services to all 57 U.S. destinations it operated prior to the COVID-19 pandemic as conditions allow.

The Canadian federal government has adjusted restrictions on travel between Canada and the U.S. as of Aug. 9, 2021, enabling fully vaccinated Americans to enter Canada for non-essential travel, the removal of quarantine hotel requirements for travelers entering or returning to Canada, relaxed testing requirements allowing Canadians taking short transborder trips for less than 72 hours to do their pre-entry tests in Canada, among other measures.
