Celebrations were held prior to the departure of the inaugural flights from Edmonton to Las Vegas and from Calgary to Palm Springs.

“We are delighted to offer more travel options to Albertans with the addition of daily, seasonal services from both Calgary and Edmonton, which means golf, entertainment and the desert sun are a short flight away every day this fall and winter. With our flexible and diverse North American fleet, we are continuing to strategically add services to popular destinations,” said Mark Galardo, Vice President, Network Planning at Air Canada.

“EIA is very excited to welcome Air Canada Rouge to the Edmonton Metro Region with their inaugural flight to Las Vegas,” said Tom Ruth, Edmonton International Airport President and CEO. “We know Las Vegas is a popular destination for both leisure and business travelers and the addition of this service will increase options for passengers and support strong business ties.”

“Sun-seekers traveling from YYC Calgary International Airport are excited to have another direct link to Palm Springs, California,” said Bob Sartor, the Calgary Airport Authority’s President and CEO. “Working with our partner, Air Canada, we’re creating effortless ways to enjoy the stunning Coachella Valley.”

The Edmonton to Las Vegas and Calgary to Palm Springs flights are onboard Air Canada Rouge A319 and Air Canada A320 aircraft respectively, both offering premium and economy cabins.
