Historical Fleet
Boeing 727-200

The Boeing 727 was introduced to service on Air Canada's Toronto-Montreal Rapidair route in winter, 1974. It was a valuable addition to the fleet as a short to medium range aircraft, and was particularly useful during the economic recession of the 80's when lower traffic demands made it impractical to operate the larger aircraft on some routes.
