Air Canada has announced the introduction of new seasonal Montreal-Bordeaux service between June 15th and September 15th next year.
Flights will operate four days a week with Boeing 737 MAX 8 and are timed to optimise connectivity to Air Canada’s North American network.
“As the only network carrier to offer non-stop transatlantic service to Bordeaux, the addition of a fifth destination in France further enhances Air Canada’s competitive position in the French market.
“Our four weekly flights are the most offered than any other airline between Montreal and Bordeaux providing travellers unique access to the famed wine growing region and the popular Nouvelle-Aquitaine market.
“In addition to playing a special role in connecting Canada with many French-speaking communities around the world, our Montreal hub is increasingly popular among US travellers who appreciate seamless connections to international destinations on Air Canada,” said Lucie Guillemette, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Air Canada.
Air Canada has configured its Boeing 737 MAX with two cabins of service: premium economy and economy.
“The arrival of Air Canada on the Montreal-Bordeaux route enhances air service options to this popular French destination for Montrealers.
“Once again, I would like to thank Air Canada for its confidence and contributions to the development of our air service,” said Philippe Rainville, chief executive of Aeroports de Montreal.
