ACV expands summer sun program with more nonstop flights

MONTREAL — Air Canada Vacations’ summer sun program offers new resorts, new nonstop flights and departures with Air Canada and Air Canada rouge, plus an EBB worth $300 off per couple to any Mexico or Caribbean destination booked by April 30 for travel May 1 – Oct. 31.

The 2014 summer schedule includes flights from Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver on Air Canada and Air Canada rouge with connections available from 66 Canadian cities.

New nonstop flights for the summer include Toronto to Grenada (Mondays), Vancouver to Puerto Vallarta (Sundays) 
and Montreal to Turks & Caicos (Tuesdays).

Grenada was a seasonal destination for Air Canada last year, with service from December to March. Now, with Air Canada rouge, flights to Grenada will be operated year round. Since Saturday and Sunday are favourite days to get married, the Monday departure to Grenada is particularly well suited to honeymoons.

“Air Canada rouge service allows Air Canada Vacations to expand its product offering compared to last year,” said Nino Montagnese, Vice President, Sales & Marketing for Air Canada Vacations. “Air Canada rouge’s goal is to make sure that customers’ vacations start and end onboard the aircraft. This engaging customer service is what makes this airline particularly suited to the leisure market.”

Air Canada Vacations is also adding a number of new resorts this summer to its already large selection in Mexico and the Caribbean.

In Puerto Vallarta, Iberostar Playa Mita opened in December 2013. This resort has something for every type of vacationer, says ACV, with access to golf as well as spa packages and family-friendly amenities and services, says ACV.

The new adults-only Secrets Puerto Los Cabos offers a free Secrets Wedding in Paradise Package and complimentary newlywed and anniversary packages.

In Barbados, the 135-room Almond Beach Resort has reopened under new management following renovations. The refurbishment project was executed by a full team under Sun Group management and included re-landscaping of the grounds and renovation of swimming pools.
