Air Canada’s leisure airline now serves Venice from two Canadian gateways
Air Canada rouge touched down at Venice Marco Polo Airport this morning, marking the start of new non-stop seasonal service from Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. Celebrations were held at both airports to inaugurate the twice-weekly service.
Service between Montreal and Venice will be operated by Air Canada rouge twice weekly through October 11, 2015 with a 280-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft offering a choice of premium and economy cabins.
Air Canada rouge now serves Venice from both Montreal and Toronto during summer 2015 and offers the most seats of any airline between Canada and Venice during the peak summer season this year.
“We are pleased to launch this new service from Montreal to the popular European destination of Venice. Air Canada continues to strategically deploy Air Canada rouge on routes with high leisure travel demand as part of our strategy for sustainable, profitable growth,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.
“Flights are timed to connect to Air Canada’s extensive domestic and international network, providing customers with more choice and convenience when travelling. Customers also have the opportunity to accumulate and redeem Aeroplan miles on all Air Canada rouge flights,” concluded Mr. Smith.
