As such, passengers will be able to fly non-stop from Vancouver to Cancun on Monday and Thursday, or to Puerto Vallarta on Tuesday and Friday. Plus, they can take advantage of increased capacity to Ixtapa on Wednesday, and Los Cabos on Sunday.

“Our partners have been asking us for more air from the West for a number of years and now finally we’re able to give them what they’ve been asking for,” said Nino Montagnese, Managing Director, Sun Markets, Air Canada Vacations. “We’re thrilled to be able to marry our great hotel product with both Air Canada and Air Canada Rouge in Western Canada.”

Air Canada Vacations’ Sun packages include free connecting flights from select cities to gateways in Western Canada. Passengers can also take advantage of Air Canada’s extensive network and connect at competitive rates from any city.
