MONTREAL, June 11, 2016 – The arrival of flight AC1910 from Toronto-Pearson at Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport this morning further extends Air Canada Rouge’s presence in Central Europe. The non-stop seasonal service, operating three-times a week, offers customers the most seats between North America and Budapest of any airline.

“We are pleased to add Budapest, a city rich in heritage along the banks of the Danube, to our growing international network. The new service makes Air Canada the carrier operating the most seats between the Hungarian capital and North America. While an important tourist market, there are also many people of Hungarian heritage in North America and this new service will make it convenient for family, friends and relatives to visit one another by connecting through our Toronto-Pearson global hub. Budapest is the second Central European destination we have introduced this summer, with Prague recently launched and Warsaw to commence operating June 14,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada.

Flights will be operated with an Air Canada Rouge Boeing 767-300ER, featuring Premium Rouge and Economy cabins. 

Flights will depart Toronto on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and return Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from Budapest, with the service operating until October 15, 2016. Flights are timed to optimize connectivity to and from Air Canada’s Toronto-Pearson global hub. 

All flights provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption and, for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access, priority boarding and other benefits.

The new TorontoBudapest service is part of Air Canada’s ongoing international expansion.
For this summer, Air Canada has also started new international services between TorontoLondonGatwick, TorontoPrague, MontrealCasablanca, VancouverBrisbane and VancouverDublin, and will soon launch other services between TorontoWarsaw, TorontoGlasgow, TorontoSeoul, and MontrealLyon. Last year, Air Canada launched new international services between TorontoDelhi, TorontoAmsterdam, TorontoDubai, MontrealVenice, MontrealMexico City and VancouverOsaka.
