Celebrations were held at both airports and in the community to inaugurate the daily service.


“Air Canada now offers the only non-stop flights between eastern Canada and Abbotsford, the largest municipality in BC’s Fraser Valley Regional District. Our Abbotsford flights seamlessly connect at our largest hub at Toronto Pearson to and from Air Canada’s extensive network of non-stop flights to Canadian, US and international destinations,” saidBenjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.


“Customers also have the opportunity to accumulate and redeem Aeroplan miles on all Air Canada rouge flights. Air Canada is selectively deploying Air Canada rouge on a limited number of predominantly leisure markets in Canada as part of our strategy for sustainable, profitable growth and to complement our successful mainline domestic network,” concluded Mr. Smith.


Service between Toronto and Abbotsford will be operated daily by Air Canada rouge toOctober 12, 2015 with 136-seat Airbus A319 aircraft offering a choice of premium and economy cabins.


“Air Canada rouge is a welcome addition to our airport community. The new service will definitely enhance the ease and convenience for our guests.  We are looking forward to working with Air Canada to establish a long-term partnership,” said Dave Holmberg, Abbotsford Airport Authority Chair.
