Expansion at Air Canada rouge continues unabated as mainline pilots embrace their low cost sibling

24-Oct-2014 12:00 AM

Air Canada continues to expand the network of its low-cost subsidiary rouge with the planned resumption of service from Vancouver to Osaka, Japan in May-2015, which marks the first Asian market for rouge. rouge is also planning to take over Air Canada mainline fights from Toronto to Lima in Peru during 2015, which will be the low-cost airline’s first destination in Latin America.

Meanwhile expansion of rouge's European network will continue in summer 2015 with the launch of services from Montreal to Venice.

As rouge continues its expansion, the low-cost airline has appeared to have gained the support of mainline pilots, who once fiercely opposed rouge’s creation. Now that rouge has logged a year in operation, pilots believe the airline is an important part of Air Canada’s long-term viability.
