Air Canada to Launch New Route Between Montreal and Bogotáby Daine Taylor /
This week, Air Canada announced the introduction of a new year-round service between Montreal and Bogotá, Colombia, beginning June 2, 2020. These nonstop flights will operate three times a week onboard the Air Canada Rouge Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, which offers a choice of premium and economy service.
"We are very pleased to offer the only nonstop, year-round flights connecting Montreal and Bogotá, two vibrant cities steeped in history and culture. This new route complements our existing Toronto-Bogotá service, and positions Air Canada as a significant player linking the growing markets between Montreal and Colombia's capital and largest city," said Mark Galardo, vice president of network planning at Air Canada.
“The addition of Bogotá represents Air Canada's 39th new route launched from Montreal-Trudeau Airport since 2012, firmly illustrating our commitment to developing Montreal as an important, strategic hub. Bogotá is also strategically situated to allow for seamless travel across South America through Star Alliance partner Avianca.”
Air Canada will be offering special introductory fares starting as low as $795 round-trip, all in, and tickets are now available for purchase.
"This is a very exciting announcement. We are looking forward to connecting our capital city with Montreal, the global leader in digital art and creativity, which will further advance the growth of the creative industries sector in Colombia,” said Federico Hoyos, Colombia’s Ambassador to Canada. “This new route will also enable a greater number of Canadians to experience 21st-century Colombia — a vibrant country that stands out for its opportunities in innovation and entrepreneurship, and for its unparalleled offer of sustainable tourism.”
