Palm Springs and Ft. Lauderdale Just Got Easier To Get To

What do Palm Springs and Fort Lauderdale have in common? Besides both being gateways to some of North America’s best golf, spas and shopping, the year-round sunny cities are also now easier to get to for Canadians this winter as Air Canada and WestJet shore up their new winter season routes and add the sun destinations to their non-stop menus.

Air Canada recently announced their new, three times a week service from Vancouver to Palm Springs beginning December 18th through to April 12th, 2015 as a test run for possibly keeping the route as a year-round destination, sizing-up the market’s demand. Flights will be handled by the vacation wing of the brand, Air Canada rouge, on Airbus A319 aircraft offering all three classes of service – the standard rouge class, rouge Plus and Premium rouge, all eligible for full Aeroplan points accumulation. Palm Springs’ year-round perfect climate, sophisticated design and huge range of activities for the whole family have renewed interest in the desert oasis and its relatively short proximity from Vancouver make it a perfect new addition for Air Canada.

Moving east, south Florida has been well connected to Ontario, Quebec and Canada’s east coast for years and has been an important market for The Sunshine State and Canadian snowbirds alike. Now, central Canada will get a taste of that convenience as WestJet brings Winnipeggers weekly non-stop service to the spring break hot spot of Fort Lauderdale, beginning November the 1st. At less than an hour from Miami, Fort Lauderdale is the perfect hop-off to all that central and south Florida has to offer, as well as a solid destination on its own. From trendy and sophisticated Las Olas Boulevard to world-class golf courses, spas and a seemingly never ending beach, it has also become a popular embarkation point for Caribbean cruise itineraries and easily promises to be a successful venture for WestJet and its travellers.
