Air Canada has delayed the inaugural revenue flight of the
Bombardier C-Series Airbus A220.
Originally, the airline planned to fly its newest jet on the Montreal (YUL) to Calgary (YYC) route beginning on Jan. 16.
But that roughly four-and-a-half-hour route will no longer see the new plane as planned. Instead, the Airbus A220 will start once-daily service on that route four days later on Jan. 20, according to ExpertFlyer data.
Due to the delay on the YUL to YYC route, the A220's first commercial flight will now be Air Canada Flight 481 from YUL to Toronto (YYZ) on Sunday, Jan. 19.
At the outset, the 330-mile commuter hop will only get the new planes on select Sunday frequencies...
