Dublin Airport Welcomes Air Canada rouge Expansion

Dublin Airport has welcomed Air Canada rouge’s decision to significantly expand capacity on its Dublin – Toronto route this year.

“We are delighted to see this significant expansion of the Air Canada rouge service so quickly after its launch,” said Vincent Harrison, Dublin Airport Managing Director. “There has been very strong demand for this route and today’s announcement is welcome as it will allow more Canadian visitors to enjoy a holiday or business trip in Ireland and also provides greater choice and flexibility for Irish customers planning on travelling to Canada.”

The new daily Air Canada rouge service between the two cities will operate four times per week from 13th June until 16th September 2015, in addition to the year round Dublin – Toronto service, which goes daily from 28th June.

“We are pleased to offer our customers travelling from Dublin even greater access to Toronto and beyond with increased flight frequency this summer,” said Robert Atkinson, Air Canada’s General Manager UK, Ireland and Northern Europe. “These additional flights complement our existing service for Irish customers, offering convenient connections to destinations across North, Central and South America as well as the Caribbean through our Toronto hub.”

The additional Dublin – Toronto flights will be operated by 280-seat widebody B767-300ER aircraft featuring stylish and modern cabin interiors. Air Canada rouge offers a two-cabin configuration with 24 Premium rouge seats in the front cabin offering additional legroom and enhanced service, and 256 rouge seats – including 35 rouge Plus seats with additional legroom – in the main rouge cabin.
