History of Air Canada

Air Canada was first founded as Trans-Canada Airlines as a subsidiary of the Canadian National Railway by the federal government in 1936. The government envisioned an airline that would service the country and bring the Pacific and Atlantic coasts closer together. Air Canada’s first trips were cheap flights to Seattle from Vancouver. The first domestic flight was between Vancouver and Montréal in 1939. In 1953 Air Canada was the first airline in the world to have a computerised reservation system, something that revolutionised passenger air travel. In 1987 the airline made a fleet-wide decision to ban smoking on all flights; it was the first airline to do this. In the 1990s a new routes opened up and Air Canada launched cheap flights to Osaka, Japan as well as an open sky agreement between Canada and the USA, allowing Air Canada to add 30 new routes to their network that crossed the border.
