Minister of Transport C.D. Howe and H.J. Symington flew from Saint-Hubert, Que., to Vancouver in the first "Dawn to Dusk" cross-Canada flight. Symington was a board member at Canadian National Railways, which operated the flight under its newly formed subsidiary, Trans-Canada Airlines. Symington would go on to be president of the airline from 1941 to 1947. The airline changed its name to Air Canada in 1965. The original “Dawn to Dusk” flight made numerous stops and took 17 hours and 34 minutes to reach its destination.
