Air Canada rouge announces Manchester-Toronto service for Summer 2014

Air Canada rouge, Air Canada’s leisure carrier subsidiary, will introduce a non-stop service from Manchester Airport to its Toronto hub, Toronto Pearson International Airport, starting 27 June through to 13 September 2014.

Air Canada rouge Manchester-Toronto flight, AC1931, will depart Manchester five times per week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) at 11:25 a.m. and arrive in Toronto at 2:10 p.m. local time the same day.  The return flight, AC1930, will depart Toronto five times per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday) at 10:05 p.m. and arrive in Manchester at 9:55 a.m. the next day (all times local).

Robert Atkinson, Air Canada’s General Manager – Sales UK, Ireland and Northern Europe, said: “We are delighted to launch an Air Canada rouge service from Manchester to Toronto, offering holiday travellers affordable fares and great service.  As well as benefiting from direct access to our Toronto hub, customers in Northern England will now be able to take advantage of convenient onward connections to destinations across North America, the Carribean and Latin America.”

The Manchester-Toronto service will be operated with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, featuring a two-cabin configuration with three customer comfort options including rouge, rouge Plus with preferred seating and additional legroom, and Premium rouge offering both additional space and enhanced services.  By the summer 2014 season, the Air Canada rouge widebody fleet will have grown to consist of eight Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.  All flights offer customers streamed wireless inflight entertainment to their own personal electronic devices, standard 110 volt power plugs and USB ports, stylish and modern cabin interiors with innovative new seats, and the ability to earn and redeem Aeroplan miles.

Stephen Turner, Manchester Airport’s Aviation Commercial Director, said: “We are pleased that Air Canada has decided to add this great addition to our already extensive route network on offer from Manchester for summer 2014.  As a major airport with a catchment area of 24 million people who live within two hours of Manchester Airport, we feel this will only strengthen our position as an airport of choice. This new service will not only take passengers to Toronto, but will plug them into Air Canada’s global network with onward connections to destinations across Canada, including Montreal and Ottawa."
