Air Canada Rouge, Air Canada’s leisure airline, commenced service today with flights between Toronto and Las Vegas, Orlando, and Regina, with additional destinations, including Cancun and Tampa, to be added in September.
Air Canada Rouge also provided a sneak preview of the cabin interior that will be available on nine of the 39-plane Rouge Fleet’s Airbus A321 aircraft, the first of which will enter service later this fall.
These nine aircraft will be outfitted with leather seats and a 30-inch seat pitch in the Economy cabin, as well as a new contemporary interior design with humorous Rouge brand touches.
The A321 Rouge also has enhanced personal power choices, such as USB-C connections and a compact personal electronic device holder built into the seatback.
Customers will be able to enjoy the current product and design changes onboard all Rouge aircraft with the return of the Air Canada Rouge service, which had been discontinued since spring 2021. These are some examples:
Upgraded streaming entertainment – clients no longer need to use an app to stream material; instead, they may now watch hours of free television and movies directly to their own device via their web browser or their complementary, disinfected iPad in Premium Rouge.
Redesigned uniforms — Rouge flight attendants will wear a new uniform that incorporates many elements of the award-winning Air Canada mainline uniform, as well as new neckwear and brevets to promote the Rouge brand.
All Air Canada Rouge flights are flown by narrow-body Airbus aircraft that provide high-speed Wi-Fi (for a fee) and a choice of Premium Rouge and Economy services. Customers traveling in the Premium Rouge cabin will receive a complimentary bar and beverage service, as well as a complimentary dinner on flights lasting more than two hours, or a snack on shorter flights.
The larger Boeing 767-300 is no longer in service with Rouge. The fleet is presently entirely comprised of Airbus aircraft.
