Air Canada is launching weekly seasonal flights between Halifax and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, beginning Dec. 14, 2013 and continuing until the end of April, 2014. AC will operate flights on Saturdays using 97-seat Embraer E190 aircraft offering a choice of Executive or Economy Class service and featuring complimentary seatback entertainment throughout the aircraft. Flights are timed to offer customers easy connections to and from major Air Canada destinations in Atlantic Canada. Air Canada’s new service complements its existing Halifax winter weekly seasonal service to Tampa and twice weekly to Orlando. Marcel Forget, Air Canada’s vice-president, network planning, said: “Our upcoming winter sun schedule offers our customers in Atlantic Canada a choice of several popular holiday destinations to escape the winter cold. Our new Fort Lauderdale service complements Air Canada’s existing Halifax flights to Tampa and Orlando. This winter, Air Canada will be offering 12 per cent more seats from Halifax to the warm sun and beaches of Florida.” Go to for more.
