“As the only network carrier to offer non-stop transatlantic service to Bordeaux, the addition of a fifth destination in France further enhances Air Canada’s competitive position in the French market. Our three weekly flights to Bordeaux provide travellers with unique access to the famed wine growing region and the popular Nouvelle-Aquitaine market. In addition to playing a special role in connecting Canada with many French-speaking communities around the world, our Montreal hub is increasingly popular among U.S. travellers who appreciate seamless connections to international destinations on Air Canada,” said Mark Galardo, Vice President, Network Planning at Air Canada.
“We are very pleased that Air Canada, our major partner, is further enhancing air services from Montréal by offering this route to a destination that is very popular with Quebecers,” said Philippe Rainville, President and CEO of Aéroports de Montréal. “The Montreal–Bordeaux link will provide added direct access to this beautiful region of southwestern France, where discoveries and gourmet delights will be on the itinerary for travellers.”
Flights are timed to optimize connectivity to Air Canada’s extensive North American network, including major cities along the U.S. east coast including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, also allowing easy connections from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas.
