MONTREAL, Oct. 2, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada today commended the Governments of Canada, the United States and Mexico on reaching a new trade agreement, thereby removing much of the uncertainty overhanging trade and business between the three countries.

"Air Canada supports all initiatives that encourage travel between Canada, the US and Mexico, especially those that also strengthen their respective economies. Air Canada is the largest foreign carrier serving the U.S. based on markets served and our success within North America has provided a foundation for our international expansion to over 100 other destinations around the world."
