ACV launching new Sun routes this winter

Air Canada Vacations (ACV) is launching four new Sun routes this winter season: Toronto –Cartagena; Calgary – Huatulco; Calgary - Los Cabos and Ottawa – Puerto Plata.

The Toronto –Cartagena service will start as of Jan. 8, 2018 and will be operated by Air Canada Rouge. The Calgary – Huatulco service will start Nov. 6, 2017 and will be operated by Air Canada Rouge. Calgary – Los Cabos will begin Oct. 29, 2017 onboard Air Canada; and Ottawa – Puerto Plata will begin December 20, 2017 also onboard Air Canada.

With the ACV&ME loyalty program, travel agents who book hotels, cruises and groups will receive 600 points per room for packages of 7+ nights; 400 points per room for packages of 3-6 nights; 600 points per stateroom for air and cruise packages; and 300 points per passenger for Group bookings. ACV&ME Points can be redeemed for Aeroplan® Miles, travel vouchers or Visa gift cards.

“Our Sun product continues to expand rapidly,” said Nino Montagnese, managing director, Air Canada Vacations. “Being part of the Air Canada family, we are able to align our vacation packages with their expansive flight network. This allows us to offer unmatched service from top Canadian hubs including Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. ”

Another part of our growth strategy is to provide even more access and lift out of other strategic hubs including Calgary and Ottawa. This will provide travellers with more flexible options to Huatulco, Los Cabos and Puerto Plata – three of ACV’s most popular Sun destinations.”

All three seasonal routes are now available to book.

ACV offers flexible getaways from 3 to 29 nights to more than 600 properties in Mexico and the Caribbean, and allows clients to earn and redeem thousands of Aeroplan® Miles on vacation packages. The tour operator flies to 40 Sun destinations and also provides connector options from 64 Canadian cities.
