Air Canada rouge, Air Canada’s new leisure carrier, will commence a non-stop service from Dublin Airport to its Toronto hub, Toronto Pearson International Airport, starting 2nd May 2014 with four weekly flights, increasing to daily during the summer peak from 23rd June 2014.
“We look forward to introducing Irish customers to Air Canada rouge”, said Robert Atkinson, Air Canada’s General Manager UK, Ireland and Northern Europe. “As well as benefiting from direct access to our Toronto hub, customers can take advantage of convenient connections to destinations across North, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Onboard, they will experience Air Canada rouge’s leading products and services, including exceptional customer service, stylish yet relaxed uniforms, and one of the first wireless streaming inflight entertainment systems – all at competitive fares.”
The Air Canada rouge Dublin-Toronto flight, AC1909, will depart Dublin four times per week (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) at 12.10 and arrive in Toronto at 14.30 local time the same day. The return flight, AC1908, will depart Toronto four times per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday) at 23.10 and arrive in Dublin at 10.40 the next day.
The route will be operated by 264-seat wide-body B767-300ER aircraft. The newly designed interior features a two-cabin configuration with 18 Premium rouge seats offering additional legroom and enhanced meal and beverage service in the front cabin, and 246 rouge seats – including 14 rouge Plus seats with additional legroom – in the rear cabin.
