Air Canada Rouge (airline code AC), is the leisure airline subsidiary of Air Canada, established in December 2012. It was due to start flying in July 2013.
The airline is wholly-owned by Air Canada and is based at Toronto's Pearson International Airport.
The carrier was established to operate leisure routes at a lower cost than the main Air Canada brand. It uses wide body ex-Air Canada Boeing 767 aircraft and narrow body Airbus A319s flown by Air Canada pilots and despite being aimed at the leisure traveller, offers three classes of service. These are detailed under the Classes page.
Air Canada Rouge operates to Edinburgh during the summer and to Venice. It has also taken over the former Air Canada route to Athens. However, most of Air Canada Rouge's flights are to the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Cuba and Jamaica.
Service levels on board vary according to your class of ticket, again, these are detailed under the Classes section.
Air Canada Rouge passengers can earn points on the Air Canada rewards programme according to which class they travel in.
