More Options From Air Canada rouge


Air Canada will be launching new, year-round Air Canada rouge services between Hamilton and Calgary and seasonal service between Toronto Pearson and Abbotsford.

The non-stop, daily flights will provide Canadian travelers more competitively-priced options when flying within Canada.

Benjamin Smith, president of passenger airlines, Air Canada, commented: “Air Canada is very pleased to offer its customers additional options at compelling fares for travel in Canada. Located in the heart of the populous Golden Horseshoe of Southern Ontario, Hamilton is a convenient departure and arrival point for tourists and visiting friends and relatives. This makes it a market ideally-suited for Air Canada rouge with its competitive cost structure.”

Smith added that: “Since it was launched a year-and-a-half ago, Air Canada rouge has proven popular with leisure travellers in the transborder and international markets. We are now selectively deploying it on a limited number of new domestic routes, such as Toronto-Abbotsford, as part of our strategy for sustainable, profitable growth and to complement our successful mainline domestic network.”

The new daily services will begin on June 27, 2015, and to mark the launch, Air Canada rouge is offering introductory fares of $198 each way (taxes are extra).
