This arrival of flight AC7998 in Sydney yesterday marked the beginning of daily service between the two cities until Oct. 26, 2019

The flight will be operated on a 78-seat Q400 turboprop aircraft. This connection will allow for travel between the two cities, or travellers can connect onward to other destinations from across Air Canada's network through the hub in Montreal.

"We are pleased to be able to offer this service between Sydney and Montreal, further strengthening our presence in Atlantic Canada and offering an additional travel option to and from beautiful Nova Scotia. Running through the busy summer travel season and into the fall, this flight will boost leisure travel to the area, with attractions such as the nearby Cabot Trail and the beautiful scenery of Cape Breton Island. This link will also benefit the business community as we've optimized flight times to allow for connectivity to and from Western Canada," said Mark Galardo, vice president, network planning at Air Canada.

The flight also complements existing service from Toronto.
