Inauguration Air Canada

With flight AC1908 which landed today in Bordeaux, AirCanada has marked the launch of the new seasonal non-stop service between Montreal and its fifth destination in France. There will be three flights a week to the well-known Montreal city from 04 July to 08 September 2019.

“As the only network airline to propose a non-stop, transatlantic service to Bordeaux, Air Canada strengthens its competitive position on the French market with the addition of a fifth destination in France”, said Mark Galardo, Vice-President - Air Canada Network Planning. “Our three weekly flights between Bordeaux and Montreal allow our passengers departing from the west of France to discover Canada and Montreal, and provide travellers from
Canada unique access to the famous wine region and the popular New Aquitaine market. As well as playing a specific role linking Canada to many Francophone communities across the world, our Montreal hub is increasingly popular with American travellers who take advantage of Air Canada's excellent connections to international destinations. ”

“We’re very happy that Air Canada, our largest partner, is improving its airline services from Montreal by offering this very popular destination with Quebec residents”, said Philippe Rainville, President-Director General of Montreal Airports. “The Montreal-Bordeaux link will offer additional direct access to the wonderful south west region of France, where discoveries and culinary delights will be on the travellers' menu. ” The flight schedule is established in such a way as to optimise connections with Air Canada’s vast American network, including major cities along the East Coast of America such as New York, Boston and Philadelphia. It also offers convenient connections with Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas.
