Mexico flights approved by Transport Canada
Won't make up for flights lost due to Mexicana bankruptcy
Air Canada and Sunwing Airlines have been given approval by Transport Canada to add new direct flights between Canada and Mexico.
"These designations of Air Canada and Sunwing Airlines demonstrate the excellent working relationship between Canada and Mexico," said Transport Minister Chuck Strahl in a release.
"They will also benefit Canadians by providing greater choice for travel between both countries."
However, the new flights aren't likely to make up for routes that were lost when Mexicana Airlines ceased operations last week.
The Mexican airline provided direct flights from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to various destinations in Mexico.
