Air Canada has announced new seasonal service from Toronto to Cartagena along with increased frequency to Bogota for this winter. Both the weekly non-stop service to CTG, which is subject to government approval, and the service to BOG will be operated by Air Canada Rouge.

"It is never too early to start planning an escape from the Canadian winter, and Air Canada is pleased to give customers more options to consider with the launch of a new Air Canada Rouge route to Cartagena,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines.

“This nearly 500-year-old city on Colombia's Caribbean coast offers visitors prime urban, beach and adventure tourism. With this new route, along with our year-round YYZ-BOG increasing to five- from four-times weekly this winter, Air Canada will offer the best coverage of the Canada-Colombia market, with the most seats and frequency."

The new, non-stop YYZ-CTG flights will operate with a 136-seat Air Canada Rouge Airbus A319 aircraft offering two cabins of service, Premium Rouge and Economy. Flights will depart Toronto each Monday starting 18DEC, 2017 until 9APR, 2018.
