Air Canada has announced a number of product upgrades to benefit customers on its leisure airline, Air Canada rouge.
The premium cabin in Air Canada rouge’s fleet of 20 Airbus A319 aircraft will be converted by mid-June from its current 3×3 seating configuration with a blocked middle seat to two side-by-side Business Class seats in a 2×2 configuration. This new seating will provide customers with more personal space and generous legroom as well as full power charging capacity with a 110-volt power plug and a high-powered USB port at every seat. Additional customer convenience features include a centre console and pop-out cocktail tray between the two seats and a coat hook at every seat.
Air Canada rouge will also increase carry-on space throughout its Airbus A319 fleet by 30% with the installation of new overhead bin doors – dubbed “pillow doors” because of their curved shape – which allow carry-on items to be stowed more efficiently. The installation takes place this summer.
In addition to the upgrades on its Airbus A319 aircraft, Air Canada rouge is also enhancing its in-flight entertainment system on all Airbus A319 and Boeing 767 aircraft.
