Heading To Africa: AC rouge Adds CMN, 4 European Cities For 2016

Open Jaw

Air Canada’s international ambitions will take the carrier to 6 continents next summer, as the airline’s leisure subsidiary Air Canada rouge introduces Casablanca as the 1st African destination in its network.

 

With the addition of seasonal YUL/CMN flights, AC will join a group of only a dozen global airlines that fly to all 6 continents. In addition AC rouge will launch seasonal service from YYZ to 4 new European destinations: GLA, PRG, BUD and WAW.

 

Ben Smith, President Passenger Airlines, says the expansion solidifies the airline’s position among leading global carriers. "Our Montreal-Casablanca flight will also be the only service to North Africa by a North American carrier and our aim is to transform this new route into a year-round operation,” Smith said.

 

“Our new, non-stop Air Canada rouge routes to Budapest, Prague, Warsaw, and Glasgow from Toronto Pearson are equally important as we continue to build out our network from our global gateway hub with more international destinations. The European services will be complemented by our Star Alliance partners, giving customers an even wider choice of travel options," added Smith.

 

All the new services will be operated by Air Canada rouge 280-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with premium and economy cabins.
