Air Canada is Canada’s largest airline carrier serving more than 38 million passengers annually.
This company offers various non-stop domestic flights to Ottawa from Canadian cities such as Montreal, Toronto and Halifax, to name a few. It also offers regular non-stop international flights from U.S. destinations such as New York, Chicago, Boston and Washington D.C. as well as from various cities in Florida and in California. From these destinations, you’ll find an average of 24 to 36 flights per day to Canadian cities.
Air Canada also offers non-stop service to Ottawa from European destinations including Frankfurt, Germany and London, England. Further, Ottawa is only a short, one-hour flight from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, which is an Air Canada hub that connects passengers to Canada from other destinations in Europe and various cities in Asia.
A founding member of transportation network Star Alliance, Air Canada offers non-stop flight service to more than 180 destinations on five continents. Chances are that if you’re coming to Ottawa from abroad, part of your journey will include an Air Canada flight. Whether you’re going from one city to another, one country to another or crossing the ocean, Air Canada’s expansive fleet has a comfortable aircraft to make the trip.
In 2015, this Canadian airline was awarded the title of Best North American Airline for International Travel. Did you know that Air Canada is actually the world’s ninth largest airline carrier? This summer, it will even have routes to Casablanca!
Embarking on a long, transcontinental flight? Consider booking a seat in the carrier’s award-winning Business Class. In this level of service, you’ll find large seats that recline fully into a bed. Get some work done before tucking in for the night with an oversize pillow and a cozy duvet blanket. You’ll arrive at your destination well-rested and ready to go.
In 2015, Air Canada was awarded the title of Best North American Airline for Business-Class Service by frequent travellers who were surveyed by Premier Traveler Magazine. This airline is also known for having the Best Flight Attendants in North America.
Can’t afford the Business Class fee? No problem. Air Canada offers an in-between in-flight service known as ‘Premium Economy.’ Though not as luxurious as Business Class, this level of service is still a step above Economy, offering priority boarding, larger seats, extra legroom and more baggage allowance. On international flights, Premium Class passengers also receive premium-level meals, hot towels as well as complimentary wine and spirits. If you’re going on vacation or on a longer trip but you don’t want to break the bank, Premium Economy service is a great option.
Also in 2015, Air Canada was the only network airline to receive a Four-Star ranking from independent research firm Skytrax. The ranking came after the evaluation of the airline’s cabin product, in-flight customer service and the Air Canada airport experience. Additionally, a 2015 Ipsos Reid survey found that Air Canada was named Canada’s Preferred Airline by 86 per cent of frequent business travellers surveyed.
Further, did you know that Air Canada is also a charitable organization? The Air Canada Foundation has a number of programs and initiatives including the Hospital Transportation Program, which through donated Aeroplan miles, helps get sick children and their families to treatment centres. In the past year, the company also committed $27,000 to the Syrian Refugee Relief Fund. But these are only two of Air Canada’s many charitable initiatives.
Last summer, Air Canada Cargo received the Outstanding Community Contribution Award from the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association for efforts made through the Air Canada Foundation.
