It’s about to get a whole lot easier to check out Washington State’s largest city as new non-stop flights from Montreal to Seattle are slated to begin.

Air Canada announced it will operate year-round, non-stop service between Montreal and Seattle on its newest narrowbody aircraft, the Airbus A220-300.

In essence, Seattle’s futuristic Space Needle from the 1962 World’s Fair has never been easier to get to from La belle province.
