Air Canada will convert its current seasonal service between Toronto and Dublin to a year-round service, beginning May 1, 2014. The service will be operated by its new leisure carrier Air Canada rouge.
The year-round service will begin with five scheduled flights per week during the summer peak season, reducing to three times a week in the winter months. The Air Canada rouge route will be serviced by Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, which have 264 seats at three customer comfort levels. Bookings will become available from June 2013 through aircanada.com and travel agents.
In 2012, leisure and business tourism from Canada to Ireland increased four per cent.
