Air Canada Rouge returned to the skies on Nov. 2 with its first flight from Toronto to Cancún.
“Air Canada Rouge remains an important part of our overall strategy in rebuilding Air Canada’s global network,” said Mark Galardo, Vice President, Network Planning and Alliances at Air Canada. “As leisure traffic resumes, we will progressively add Air Canada Rouge to select North American leisure markets from Eastern Canada.”
Travel advisors can now book clients’ next trips through Air Canada Vacations with non-stop flights operated by Air Canada Rouge as of this month from Toronto to popular destinations such as Kingston, Montego Bay, Saint Lucia, Punta Cana, Cancún and Cayo Coco.
Air Canada Rouge flights are operated with narrow-body Airbus aircraft featuring a choice of Premium Rouge and Economy services. Customers travelling in the Premium Rouge cabin will be offered a complimentary, pre-packaged meal curated by chef Antonio Park with complimentary bar and beverage service. All customers onboard Rouge flights will have access to complementary in-flight entertainment that is streamed right to their personal smartphone or device of choice without the requirement to download an app. Premium Rouge customers will also be offered the complimentary use of sanitized iPads containing entertainment content.
“Since the beginning of the summer Air Canada Vacations has been working to bring vacations back to customers who are looking for a getaway,” said Nino Montagnese, Managing Director at Air Canada Vacations. “The return of Air Canada Rouge to the skies is an important piece in our strategy to deliver more choice and flexibility in more destinations so your customers can book with confidence.”
Air Canada Rouge flights will feature Premium Rouge and Economy Class cabins with Air Canada CleanCare+ safety measures in place. As well, customers booking a vacation package will also experience Air Canada Vacations’ health and safety standards.
