Including these, the company will launch six new non-stop U.S. services beginning Spring 2017.

Apart from the services from Toronto hub to these three new destinations, the carrier will add Montreal to Dallas-Fort Worth, and Vancouver to Denver.

The sixth route, Vancouver-Phoenix, will be converted into year-round service from seasonal service. These additional services are expected to deepen Air Canada's transborder schedule.

The non-stop services will be operated by Air Canada Express starting in May 2017. They will continue year-round, except for Toronto-Savannah, which will operate on a summer seasonal basis.

The company said all routes will be operated with regional jet aircraft with flights timed to conveniently connect with Air Canada's domestic and international schedule.

The flights will provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption, Star Alliance reciprocal benefits and, certain benefits for eligible customers.
