Air Canada has given the confirmation that it is on the lookout to employ 150 new cabin personnel as it stands on the verge of preparing for the launch of new leisure carrier, Air Canada rouge. The carrier is scheduled to take to the air in July this year as the flag carrier of Canada looks out to compete in the thriving leisure travel sector.
The airline’s seasonal flights to Athens will be operated by the leisure carrier. The flights will be taken off from Toronto and Montreal to the Greek capital.
Ben Smith, Chief Commercial Officer, Air Canada, said, “With the launch of Air Canada rouge, Air Canada grabs an opportunity to enter the leisure travel market on a truly competitive basis. Air Canada rouge will control the strengths of the airline’s extensive network, operational expertise and frequent flyer reward program so that Canadians can be bestowed with great value.”
The leisure carrier to be launched will begin its services to Venice and Edinburgh that are not operated by Air Canada.
