"Air Canada Vacations continues to diversify its package offerings by presenting a significantly expanded range of unique and authentic travel experiences in addition to conventional vacation packages,” said Craig Landry, President, Air Canada Vacations & Senior Vice President, Revenue Optimization at Air Canada.
“We are delighted customers are choosing Air Canada Vacations in record numbers for their vacation travel plans, and we look forward to welcoming them onboard our flights. To further drive growth, Air Canada Vacations will debut a new booking website early next year, which will provide customers with even more compelling vacation experiences to conveniently choose from."
