Get Ready For Summer

Air Canada Adds Three New Domestic Services From BC

Air Canada inaugurated the first of three new, non-stop domestic services from BC communities with the departure of AC1976 from Kamloops to Toronto yesterday.

Today, the carrier is inaugurating new non-stop seasonal services from Victoria to Montreal and from Nanaimo to Toronto.

The new domestic long-haul services are operated onboard the airline’s leisure carrier Air Canada Rouge, which will be celebrating its fifth birthday on July 1, and are launching just in time for the busy summer travel season.

Benjamin Smith, president, Airlines and chief operating officer at Air Canada, commented: “The convenience of these new services makes it easier than ever for customers from other parts of our network to travel to beautiful British Columbia’s Vancouver Island and Thompson Okanagan areas. Customers from Nanaimo, Victoria and Kamloops now have the convenience of non-stop flights to Toronto and Montreal, where unparalleled connecting options are also available throughout our far-reaching North American and global network.”

These routes are part of Air Canada’s strategic expansion of 25 new routes being launched during the 2018 summer season.

Air Canada Rouge A319 aircraft offer high-speed wi-fi services and a choice of two cabins. All flights are timed to connect conveniently with Air Canada’s global schedule, and provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption, Star Alliance reciprocal benefits, and for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access at mainline airports, priority boarding and other benefits.
