Boston, Massachusetts, just got that much closer to Calgary.
Air Canada recently announced that it will be operating daily flights between the two hubs as of this summer, allowing Calgarians easy access to the land of baked beans.
The non-stop flights will be operated using the Airbus A319 aircraft, which offers the choice of business and economy class cabins, according to an Air Canada release.

“This flight is meant to connect Western Canada to Boston through Calgary, allowing for non-stop travel to Boston where visitors can enjoy the charms of Massachusetts’ capital and largest city,” said Mark Galardo, Vice President of Network Planning at Air Canada, in the release, “while visitors to Calgary can take in the city’s culture and make a quick trip to the Rocky Mountains.”
The daily service is set to begin on June 22 and wrap up on September 7, with flights leaving Calgary at 4:15 pm and landing in Boston at 10:46 pm.
Boston to Calgary flights will leave at 6:30 am and land at 9:32 am — a seemingly shorter flight thanks to the time zone differential.
“With this new flight connecting Calgary and Boston, Tourism Calgary’s partner Air Canada continues to help us showcase everything Calgary has to offer with new visitors,” said Cindy Ady, Tourism Calgary CEO, in the release.
“Additional direct routes also support the economic impact of tourism, which directly contributes over $2 billion to Calgary’s economy each year. We are very eager to share Calgary with Bostonians beginning June 2020.”
The new Air Canada flights mark the only non-stop connection between Calgary and Boston.
