After nearly 12 years I am retiring this month as President and Chief Executive of Air Canada. I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for trusting your travel to us and for choosing to fly with Air Canada. Our success transforming our airline into a proud, Canadian global champion would not have been possible without your loyalty.
But while my tenure is ending, Air Canada’s continued pursuit of excellence is not. An entrepreneurial mindset is now ingrained at our airline and Air Canada will continue to innovate and evolve, always with enhanced customer safety and service in mind. This same goal has driven us over the past decade.
Its most obvious manifestation has been our expanded network, growing to over 100 international destinations before Covid‑19 forced a retrenchment that I assure you is temporary. We will keep offering customers more choice of places to go and convenient, non‑stop routings to get there, truly connecting the world to Canada and through Canada.
