Dublin Airport Welcomes Air Canada rouge Expansion

Back to overview Wednesday 11 February 2015

Dublin Airport has welcomed Air Canada rouge’s decision to significantly expand capacity on its Dublin-Toronto route this year.

Air Canada rouge, which only launched its year-round service to Dublin last May, will add extra flights through the summer months this year, and will operate the route double daily four days per week from June until September.

“We are delighted to see this significant expansion of the Air Canada rouge service so quickly after its launch,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison. “There has been very strong demand for this route and today’s announcement is welcome as it will allow more Canadian visitors to enjoy a holiday or business trip in Ireland and also provides greater choice and flexibility for Irish customers planning on travelling to Canada.”

The new daily Air Canada rouge service between the two cities will operate four times per week from June 13 until September 16 2015, in addition to the year round Dublin-Toronto service which goes daily from June 28.

“We are pleased to offer our customers travelling from Dublin even greater access to Toronto and beyond with increased flight frequency this summer,” said Robert Atkinson, Air Canada’s General Manager U.K., Ireland and Northern Europe. “These additional flights complement our existing service for Irish customers, offering convenient connections to destinations across North, Central and South America as well as the Caribbean through our Toronto hub.”

The additional Dublin-Toronto flights will be operated by 280-seat wide-body Boeing 767-300ER aircraft featuring stylish and modern cabin interiors. 

Air Canada rouge offers a two-cabin configuration with 24 Premium rouge seats in the front cabin offering both additional legroom and enhanced service, and 256 rouge seats – including 35 rouge Plus seats with additional legroom – in the main rouge cabin.
