AC To Begin Year-Round Flights From YUL to Bogotá In JUN 2020
Air Canada is introducing new year-round service between Montreal and Bogotá, Colombia beginning 2JUN, 2020. Flights will operate three times weekly onboard an AC Rouge Boeing 767-300ER offering a choice of premium and economy service.
"We are very pleased to offer the only non-stop, year-round flights connecting Montreal and Bogotá, two vibrant cities steeped in history and culture," said Mark Galardo, Vice President of Network Planning at Air Canada. "This new route complements our existing Toronto-Bogotá service, and positions Air Canada as a significant player linking the growing markets between Montreal and Colombia's capital and largest city."
The addition of Bogotá represents Air Canada's 39th new route launched from YUL since 2012.
Flights are timed to optimize connectivity to and from Air Canada's network at its Montreal hub. In addition, flights are timed to connect to Star Alliance partner Avianca's network to other destinations including Medellin, Cartagena, Cali, Lima, Cuzco, Guayaquil and Quito.
"For several years now, Aéroports de Montréal has been wanting to improve service from YUL to destinations in South America. While a flight to Sao Paolo will be inaugurated in a few weeks, Air Canada is doubling the stakes by adding this new direct connection to Bogotá, Colombia," said Philippe Rainville, President and CEO of Aéroports de Montréal.
