Air Canada shares fall after the airline cut summer schedules

Air Canada shares fell seven percent in early morning trading after the airline announced major cuts to its summer flight schedule.

The Montreal-based airline announced Wednesday night that it will ground more than 15 percent of its flights in July and August as airports face lengthy delays and cancellations amid an overwhelming resurgence in travel.

The move removes an average of 154 flights a day from the airline’s schedule – already operating at just 80 percent of pre-pandemic levels – affecting hundreds of thousands of passengers.
