Air Canada Rouge to add European services next summer

Air Canada Rouge has announced it is further boosting international flights at its Vancouver hub next summer with three times weekly seasonal flights from London Gatwick to Vancouver. 

Flights begin June 8th, 2017 and tickets are now available for purchase.

In addition to this new summer service, Air Canada is introducing daily seasonal flights from Frankfurt to Vancouver beginning June 2nd, 2017.

“Air Canada continues to strategically increase its European flights at YVR with seasonal daily flights to Frankfurt next summer and three times weekly flights to London Gatwick,” said Benjamin Smith, Air Canada president, passenger airlines.

“The addition of our flights to Frankfurt, one of Europe’s most important hubs, offers customers a wide array of convenient choices and the ease of one-stop connections with our Star Alliance partner Lufthansa when travelling to southern, central and eastern Europe as well as Africa, the Middle East and beyond.

“We will be the only airline flying non-stop between YVR and the two largest airports in the London metropolitan region during the peak summer travel period with the addition of London Gatwick. 

“By next summer, Air Canada will serve five European destinations non-stop from YVR including two significant hubs, Frankfurt and London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Dublin, and on a code-share basis with joint venture partner Lufthansa Munich, strengthening YVR as an important hub that connects our BC, Western Canada and US routes to our expanding international network,” concluded Smith.
