Yeah, we live on a beach. But that doesn’t stop us from dreaming of our next vacation over here at Kitsilano.ca. Low cost carrier Air Canada Rouge (a subsidiary of Air Canada) begins service out of Vancouver this spring. Their focus is leisure travel. So we’re looking forward to cheaper flights to sunny destinations plus more route options.
Rouge will fly to a number of destinations where Air Canada has already flown to in the past — just more frequently. Air Canada Rouge will take over Air Canada’s flights to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Anchorage. The airline announced that it will introduce new seasonal non-stop service operated by Air Canada rouge between Vancouver and Phoenix beginning December 17, 2014.
We also expect, especially in Europe, a rollout of additional destinations. Rouge plans to operate a total of 54 routes, including new service this summer to Barcelona, Dublin, Lisbon, Manchester, Nice and Rome.
Bonus: the flight attendants are Disney-trained and wear “stylishly relaxed onboard apparel” pictured to the right.
It’s time to get out your calendar and start planning your next short-haul flight to a fun-in-the-sun destination. Or perhaps you’re tempted by a pastel de nata and bica with a view of a sun-soaked praça in Portugal. You can’t go wrong, really. They both sound super fly to us.
