Flights to the ‘Golf Capital of the World’ will be operated with Air Canada rouge Airbus A319 aircraft featuring three customer comfort options: rouge, rouge Plus with preferred seating offering additional legroom, and Premium rouge with additional personal space and enhanced service.
“We are pleased to add Palm Springs to our route network of winter holiday choices,” said Benjamin Smith, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Air Canada. “Offering world class golf, tennis, arts, culture, entertainment and shopping, Palm Springs joins Las Vegas and Phoenix as three of the top U.S. leisure desert playgrounds served by Air Canada rouge this winter. Air Canada rouge is best suited to compete more cost effectively in these markets where there is both a high leisure travel demand and low-cost competition.”
Air Canada rouge flights between Vancouver and Palm Springs, will begin December 18, 2014 and will operate three times weekly until April 12, 2015.
Flights have been timed to connect conveniently at Air Canada’s Vancouver hub to and from the airline’s extensive Western Canada network.
Air Canada rouge operates a fleet consisting of Boeing 767-300ER and Airbus A319 aircraft transferred from Air Canada.
Since the launch in July 2013 of Air Canada rouge, Air Canada has deployed its leisure carrier to a growing number of Caribbean, Mexico, Europe and select sun destinations in the United States. Customers have the ability to earn and redeem Aeroplan miles on Air Canada rouge flights.
