Air Canada Rouge to Launch Non-Stop Montreal-Victoria Flights

Air Canada is to launch non-stop, seasonal flights between Montreal and Victoria, B.C. in June 2018.

 The new domestic transcontinental route complements Air Canada's U.S. transborder expansion with new non-stop year-round Montreal-Baltimore and Montreal-Pittsburgh routes beginning in spring 2018. All new flights are now available for purchase.

"We are expanding our domestic network with our flexible fleet, products and services to capitalize on the growing seasonal demand to and from Vancouver Island during the peak summer travel period and will offer vacation travellers from Eastern Canada more convenient travel options," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. "With the addition of new year-round Montreal-Baltimore and Montreal-Pittsburgh services, our customers will have unparalleled access to the most cities of any carrier in the United States, and provide U.S. travellers a convenient option to access our growing international network from Montreal. This underscores once again the strategic importance of building our Montreal hub as Air Canada continues its global expansion. Since 2012, our ever-growing presence at Montreal-Trudeau Airport has increased by 83% with the introduction of 29 new routes."

All flights are timed to connect conveniently with Air Canada's global schedule, and provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption, Star Alliance reciprocal benefits, and for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access at mainline airports, priority boarding and other benefits.

"The announcement of these direct flights to Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Victoria solidifies Montreal's role as a hub for business travel in North America. Montreal's business community will greatly benefit from more direct flights to major economic cities, so I commend Air Canada's commitment to contribute to Montreal's economic development," said Montreal Mayor, Valérie Plante.
