“We had the pleasure of welcoming 100,701 passengers on board on April 15th 2022 and Passenger volumes are steadily increasing, said Kevin O’Connor, Vice President – Monitoring Network Operations, whose employees manage day-to-day operations at Air Canada. The appearance of pent-up demand is only matched by our delight in welcoming our customers back. Most importantly, we smoothly crossed that threshold, indicating that Air Canada has recovered from the operational effects of COVID-19 and is ready to transport its customers safely and securely during the busy summer period that lies ahead. »
