Air Canada launches seasonal Toronto to Mont Tremblant Flight
Air Canada is launching a new non stop seasonal service from Toronto’s Pearson Airport to Mont Tremblant, Quebec.
The added Flights to the popular tourist destination, which will debut just in time for ski season, are another sign of the heated competition between Canada’s largest Airline and rival Porter Airlines.
Air Canada Express will operate four weekly Flights from Pearson to Mont Tremblant using the 74 seat Bombardier Q400 Aircraft, the Airline said on Wednesday.
Flights will operate between Dec. 18, 2014 and March 30, 2015
We are thrilled to launch this new service to the Upper Laurentian region famous for a wide variety of outdoor activities including skiing at the world renowned Mont-Tremblant ski resort, that will boost tourism and contribute to the local economy,Benjamin Smith, president, passenger airlines, at Air Canada, said in a release.
Air Canada hopes to cash in on the destination’s growing popularity with U.S.
visitors, particularly those from the northeast and Midwestern states.
“Flights are timed to closely connect with incoming U.S. and other flights to Pearson so it will be quick and convenient to get to Tremblant.,Air Canada spokesperson Peter Fitzpatrick said in an email.
Pearson offers U.S. customs pre-clearance, making it easier for U.S. customers to return home, Fitzpatrick added.
Porter Airlines offers seasonal flights, as well as vacation packages, to Mont-Tremblant.
Porter has offered winter seasonal service to the ski destination from Toronto’s Billy Bishop airport since 2007, with as many as 13 flights per week with one-way fares starting at $140. It added summer service in 2010.
“We think that’s quite competitive and we have been developing the route for the last 7 years,” Porter spokesperson Brad Cicero said. “We are clearly the MARKET leader.”
