Air Canada Rouge has launched twice week seasonal
flights from Montreal to Bucharest, Romania.
Flights will be operated with Air Canada
Rouge Boeing 767-300ER aircraft featuring Premium Rouge and
Economy class service and are timed to optimize connectivity from
across Air Canada's network through its Montreal hub.
"As the only North American airline flying to
Romania, the largest European market without trans-Atlantic
flights, we are extremely proud to launch our first
Montreal-Bucharest flight, strengthening even further Air Canada's
presence in Southeastern Europe," said Benjamin Smith, President,
Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. "Air Canada's on-going
commitment to grow Montreal as an important hub in our global
network provides customers greater choice, as well as the ability
to conveniently connect onward through our extensive North
American and International network."
Adrian Ligor, Chargť d'Affaires at the
Romanian Embassy in Canada, said, "Canada and Romania are now
three hours closer. This new link will make it easier for
investors and tourists from both Romania and Canada to travel
either for business or leisure. It also brings closer families and
friends of the large Canadian-Romanian community in the Montreal
area. I wish Air Canada every success with its new direct service
