New low-cost airline announces flights to Costa Rica
Air Canada unveiled Wednesday its new Air Canada Rouge airline, which will offer low-cost flights to destinations in Europe and the Americas, including Costa Rica.
The new carrier will launch operations with two Boeing 767s and two Airbus 319s, but Rouge plans to expand to more than 50 aircraft in the next three to five years, according to a press release.
Initial destinations to begin July 1, 2013, include Venice, Edinburgh, Athens, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Costa Rica.
On its website the company offers flights to San José and Liberia “starting as low as $389 each way including all taxes, fees, charges and surcharges.”
Air Canada plans to hire 200 people for Rouge. “Cost savings are expected to come from paying lower wages and putting more seats in planes in a so-called new multi-tier seating structure,” the company stated.
