The arrival of flight AC1924 at London-Gatwick airport May 20 marked the successful launch of Air Canada rouge’s newest route.
The seasonal, non-stop service between Toronto and London-Gatwick will operate up to daily during the summer and give Air Canada customers even more choices when travelling to London and Europe.
“London-Heathrow is already Air Canada’s largest international gateway with flights to eight Canadian cities, so we are pleased to expand to London-Gatwick in time for the summer, when millions of vacationers are travelling between Canada and the U.K. With this new route, we become the only Canadian carrier serving the two largest airports in the London metropolitan region,” said Benjamin Smith, president, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.
Flights will be operated with an Air Canada rouge Boeing 767-300ER, featuring premium and economy cabins. The service commenced with six weekly flights going to daily service throughout the summer from June 1 to Sept. 26, and then with reduced frequency until Oct. 16.
