by Richard D'Ambrosio

Air Canada Vacations has launched a 43-property Ultimate Escapes collection of vacation packages, covering 15 destinations across Mexico, the Caribbean and the United States.

“Carefully curated with the discerning traveler in mind, accommodations include ocean-facing suites and villas, as well as private round-trip transfers, dining from the menus of award-winning chefs, vast wine lists, butler service and more,” the airline said in a statement.

Properties include the One&Only Palmilla, Gansevoort Turks + Caicos and Viceroy Riviera Maya.

All packages come with round-trip flights aboard Air Canada or Air Canada Rouge, departing from 64 Canadian cities and private round-trip transfers as well as complimentary seat selection, preferred seating when available, and a one-time bonus of 1,500 Altitude Qualifying Miles for Air Canada AltitudeTM members. Customers travelling in groups can also choose to elevate their Ultimate Escape by booking a 58-seat private jet with Air Canada Jetz.

"Our Ultimate Escapes Collection meets the needs of travelers looking for a vacation offering the epitome of luxury that they can book in one place with the trust and convenience of doing so with Air Canada Vacations." said Nino Montagnese, Managing Director at Air Canada Vacations. "We're constantly striving to go beyond packaged vacations to offer effortless travel that transports travelers to the extraordinary and we're proud to say we've done exactly that, with luxury reflected in every last detail."
