Air Canada Rouge launched its new seasonal non-stop service from London Gatwick to Vancouver yesterday.

Air Canada Rouge is Air Canada’s leisure airline and will operate three services a week to Air Canada’s Vancouver hub, Vancouver International Airport, until 7 October 2017 (westbound).

“We successfully launched our London Gatwick-Toronto service last summer and we are pleased to introduce our second seasonal service from London Gatwick today” said Stephen Gerrard, Air Canada’s General Manager Sales UK and Ireland. “Our customers can now fly non-stop with Air Canada Rouge to Western Canada with onward connections to our extensive global network. Creating memorable moments is what we pride ourselves on at Air Canada Rouge. Our flight attendants are all trained at the Disney Institute in customer service excellence and we offer a host of Air Canada benefits, all at competitive fares.”

Guy Stephenson, Chief Commercial Officer, London Gatwick Airport, welcomed Air Canada Rouge’s new service from London Gatwick. “Visitors from the UK will be spoilt for choice in Vancouver – one of the world’s most exciting places to visit. The city hosts a wealth of festivals, galleries, theatres, museums and music venues and is the principal gateway to the famous Canadian outdoors. This new route also provides an important connection between the two countries business communities, including Vancouver’s flourishing high-tech, media and green economy sectors.”

The London Gatwick-Vancouver service will operate three times a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) with all flights timed to optimise connectivity through Air Canada’s Vancouver hub. Air Canada Rouge flight AC1935 departs Gatwick at 12.00 p.m., arriving in Vancouver at 2.10 p.m., the same day. The return flight AC1934 departs Vancouver at 4.45 p.m., arriving in London Gatwick at 10.25 a.m., the next day (all times local and subject to change). Flight times are ten hours 10 minutes westbound and nine hours 40 minutes eastbound.

The route is operated by 282-seat wide-body Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. The aircraft interior features a two-cabin configuration with 24 Premium Rouge seats offering both additional legroom and enhanced service in the front cabin and 258 Economy seats – including 39 Preferred seats with additional legroom – in the rear cabin.
