Air Canada launching non-stop daily Toronto - New Orleans service
More Canadians visit New Orleans each year than any other non-U.S. country, making Canada the #1 foreign market for the city of New Orleans. Beer and Mardis Gras obviously mix quite well.
Air Canada continues to expand its cross-border flights out of Pearson, now New Orleans marks the 8th new U.S. daily service announced in 2010.
"Air Canada is very pleased to offer customers service between Toronto and New Orleans, the eighth new route from Toronto to the U.S. we will launch this year. New Orleans was recently voted one of the top ten cities to visit in the U.S. and Canada by the well-respected Travel + Leisure magazine and there are also important business connections between New Orleans and Canada. Customers will enjoy the choice of two classes of service, the opportunity to collect and redeem Aeroplan miles, and for those who are eligible lounge access and concierge service ... This route further enhances our Toronto hub at Lester B. Pearson International Airport where our operations are centralized in a single terminal with streamlined customs procedures, making it an extremely convenient gateway to and from the U.S. and an ideal transfer point for domestic, transborder and international travelers connecting to our extensive global network." - Ben Smith, EVP CCO Air CanadaAir Canada's Toronto to New Orleans non-stop daily service will begin on October 30, 2010.
