Air Canada Introduces Premium Transcon Service

by Richard D’Ambrosio

Air Canada this June will introduce lie-flat suites for premium cabin customers flying non-stop to Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver both within Canada and from the U.S.

Beginning June 1, travelers can fly Air Canada Signature Class between Toronto and Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Vancouver, and between Vancouver and the cities of New York-Newark and Montreal.

Air Canada Signature Service customers receive priority service, including access to airport concierge services, expedited check-in and security clearance, priority baggage handling and preferential boarding. 

Customers will also enjoy Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge access and, for eligible customers connecting onward to international destinations at Toronto-Pearson, access to the exclusive Air Canada Signature Suite, featuring à la carte restaurant dining. 

For customers originating in Toronto-Pearson or arriving at Toronto-Pearson from a domestic Canada flight with onward international travel, Air Canada also will provide Air Canada Valet Service, starting later in 2018, where a dedicated fleet of BMW sedans shuttle customers over the tarmac to their connections.
