Canada-China commit to establishing new direct air links

The Government of Canada is committed to helping the Canadian air industry increase its access to international markets, which in turn benefits domestic businesses, shippers and travellers.

To this end, on November 8, 2014, Canada and China welcomed the bilateral commitment to establish new direct air services between Beijing and Calgary as well as Beijing and Montreal. The announcement was made during Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s visit to China, from November 5 to 10, 2014.
