Air Canada will launch in 2013 a new leisure airline called Air Canada Rouge Air CanadaOs new leisure airline, Air Canada rouge (red), will launch operations July 1, 2013 from Toronto Pearson and Montreal Trudeau. The new carrier will serve European and Caribbean destinations with a fleet of two Boeing 767-300ERs and two Airbus A319s. The previously announced leisure carrier will introduce new service from Toronto Pearson service to Venice and Edinburgh. It will also operate Air CanadaOs seasonal Athens service from Montreal Trudeau and Toronto as well as existing Air Canada flights operated in cooperation with Air Canada Vacations from Toronto to Cuba (Varadero, Cayo Coco, Holguin and Santa Clara), the Dominican Republic (Punta Cana, Puerto Plata and Samana), Jamaica (Kingston) and Costa Rica (San Jose and Liberia) beginning this July. Its Boeing 767 aircraft will operate transatlantic flights in a two-cabin configuration while the Airbus A319s will operate North American flights in an all-economy configuration. The aircraft will be released from Air CanadaOs fleet as it takes delivery of two new Boeing 777-300ERs in 2013. The airline said that Air Canada rouge will expand to other popular holiday destinations as Air Canada starts to take delivery of new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in 2014, thereby freeing up aircraft for deployment in the Air Canada rouge fleet. As this occurs, and subject to commercial demand, Air Canada rouge may operate up to 20 Boeing 767-300ER aircraft and 30 Airbus A319 aircraft, for a total of 50 aircraft.
