The departure of flight AC1962 from Montreal-Trudeau airport tonight will mark the successful launch of Air Canada Rouge’s newest route. The seasonal, nonstop service between Montreal and Marseille will operate three times a week during the summer and give Air Canada customers even more choices when travelling to France.
“The Marseille service will be the only nonstop flight operated by a network carrier between Marseille and North America further expanding Air Canada’s reach in France by complementing existing services to Paris, Lyon and Nice, and strengthening our presence in Provence-Côte d’Azur, a popular summer destination for Quebecers,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. “With conveniently timed connections throughout Canada and the U.S., this new service to Marseille further expands our global reach from Montreal, reinforcing Montreal-Trudeau as a strategic hub for all of Eastern Canada and the North-Eastern US”
Flights will be operated from June 9 to October 13 with an Air Canada Rouge Boeing 767-300ER, featuring premium and economy cabins. All flights provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption and, for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access, priority boarding and other benefits.
