Air Canada (AC, Montréal Trudeau) has concluded mainline E190 and B767-300(ER) operations as it moves ahead with its planned fleet restructuring.

The last flight of the Canadian carrier's B767-300(ER) was operated on June 2 from Montréal Trudeau to Toronto Pearson by C-FCTA (msn 24307).

Although the mainline carrier no longer operates any B767s, the carrier's low-cost arm Air Canada rouge (RV, Toronto Pearson) continues to operate 25 of the type. However, Air Canada has recently announced that rouge will transform to a narrowbody operator with a fleet of Airbus aircraft.

In turn, the E190s were retired at the end of May with the last scheduled flights operating on May 31. According to Flightradar24 ADS-B data, the last two aircraft to operate scheduled flights were C-FMZD (msn 19000115) and C-FNAN (msn 19000136), which landed at Toronto from Saskatoon and Halifax respectively.

Air Canada does not own any E190s. The last that were in service were all dry-leased from Nordic Aviation Capital, the ch-aviation fleets ownership module shows. Air Canada decided to immediately retire its E190s in early May 2020 due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and is replacing them with A220-300s.

Air Canada does not operate any other Embraer jets directly, although Sky Regional Airlines (KV, Montréal Trudeau) operates twenty-five E175s on its behalf under the Air Canada Express regional partnership.
