Air Canada Rouge to Take Over Air Canada Routes to Caribbean, Florida
Air Canada announced that Air Canada rouge, a subsidiary of the airline, will begin operating routes previously operated by the parent company from Toronto and Montreal this summer. Air Canada rouge will take over routes from the two Canadian cities to various destinations in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, Barbados, Haiti, Mexico, and Florida.
From Toronto, Air Canada rouge will assume Air Canada’s service to Tampa, Barbados, and Nassau in the Bahamas. The carrier will also take over Air Canada’s service from Montreal to Cancun, Mexico; Varadero, Cayo Coco, Holguin, and Santa Clara, Cuba; Port-au-Prince, Haiti; and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
These routes will be converted to Air Canada rouge service between March and May, as the airline acquires additional aircraft from Air Canada. By the end of March, the carrier will have an additional four Boeing 767-300ER aircraft and 13 Airbus A319 aircraft, which it will use to help integrate its new routes.
With the newly acquired routes, Air Canada rouge will serve a total of 44 destinations by this summer.
