IMG_0484 2Air Canada announced the start of new non-stop thrice-weekly seasonal service from Montreal to Bordeaux, France, as well as plans for year-round Calgary-Terrace service.

The wine region is the carrier’s fifth destination in France.

The airline will operate the Bordeaux service from July 3, 2019 through September 8.

Bordeaux is known for its wine-growing region as well as its popular Nouvelle-Aquitaine market, and Bordeaux wine has been produced in the region since the 8th century. The city has the highest number, after Paris, of preserved historical buildings in the country and the historic section of the city is a treasure trove of 18th century architecture.

Air Canada Rouge will operate the flights using Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. The airliners are equipped with 24 Premium Rouge recliner seats, which are 18.5” wide with 37” of pitch, in a 2-2-2 configuration, as well as 36 premium-economy lite seats that are 18” wide and 219 coach seats that are 17.5” in width.

The Canadian flag carrier will start non-stop service linking Calgary and Terrace on October 28, 2019. The airline already offers service between Vancouver and Terrace. It will operate the flights using Bombardier Q-400 aircraft.

Terrace is a city in British Columbia near the Skeena River. It was once known as the cedar pole capital of the world.
