Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
MONTREAL – Air Canada rouge has officially touched down in Central Europe, with flight AC1922 arriving in Prague this morning.
Departing from Toronto Pearson to Václav Havel Airport Prague, the flight marks the beginning of Air Canada rouge’s expansion into Central Europe this summer. Seasonal service will operate three times a week, offering passengers the only non-stop connection between Canada and the Czech Republic on a network carrier.
Flights will be operated with an Air Canada rouge Boeing 767-300ER featuring Premium Rouge and Economy cabins, and depart Toronto on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Service will operate until Sept. 29, 2016.
“We are pleased to add Prague, one of Europe’s most visited cities and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to our growing international network. Air Canada will operate the most seats and frequencies between Canada and the Czech Republic this summer and, as the only network carrier flying between the two countries, it offers customers a wide range of onward connections throughout the rest of Air Canada’s extensive network,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.
According to Smith, Prague is the first of three new destinations Air Canada rouge will serve in Central Europe this summer from Toronto, with Budapest and Warsaw following soon after.
