Air Canada Launches Premium Transcontiental Routes
Air Canada, the flag carrier of Canada, has launched a premium transcontinental business class product in an effort to catch up with their American counterparts, and to win back business lost to new low cost carriers entering the market.
The flights, operated by their 777-300ER, 787-8, A330 and 767 aircraft, add on to their existing wide-body service to the United States with amenities from international flights, and flat bed seats on every flight. The passengers are also provided with the same ground service and lounge access as international passengers.
The flights are to run from Air Canada’s main hub in Toronto to their secondary hubs in Vancouver and Calgary. In addition, they are flying from Toronto to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and on their Montreal to Vancouver route.
The flights have been announced in an effort to match the service offered on transcontinental flights in the U.S. Currently, nearly every US airline offers flat bed transcontinental service.
These new flights will try to encourage West Coast based flyers to fly nonstop to Canada onboard Air Canada, instead of flying through hubs in the Eastern United States.
