Air Canada announced today the introduction of new seasonal Montreal and Bordeaux service between June 15 and September 15, 2019.
Flights will operate four days a week with Boeing 737 MAX 8 and are timed to optimize connectivity to Air Canada’s extensive North American network, including major cities along the US east coast including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, also allowing easy connections from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas.
Lucie Guillemette, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Air Canada, said:
“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 Montrealand 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 Canadawith many French-speaking communities around the world, our Montreal hub is increasingly popular among U.S. travelers who appreciate seamless connections to international destinations on 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 Montréal-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, President and CEO of Aéroports de Montréal.
