EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Air Canada has decided to not return to Atlantic City International Airport this summer, a spokesman for the airline said Wednesday afternoon.
Last summer, Canada’s largest airline offered a four-day-a-week route between its Toronto hub and Atlantic City International.
The 90-minute flights ran Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays using a 74-passenger propeller plane.

“At this point we have completed our summer schedule and we will not be renewing service to Atlantic City for this summer,” said spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick. “We will operate up to 13 daily flights this summer to Newark Liberty International Airport from Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver for customers in New Jersey and the surrounding area to provide convenient flights to Canada and connections onto our extensive domestic and international network.”
In a statement, Deputy Airport Director Tim Kroll said ACY was disappointed the service would not resume.
“We will continue to pursue airlines and air service best-suited to serve our area.” he said.
