Air Canada Vacations is pleased to offer the following new non-stop flights this summer:

• Toronto to Grenada (Monday)

"Air Canada rouge service allows Air Canada Vacations to expand its product offering compared to last year," said Nino Montagnese, Vice President, Sales & Marketing for Air Canada Vacations. "Air Canada rouge's goal is to make sure that customers' vacations start and end onboard the aircraft. This engaging customer service is what makes this airline particularly suited to the leisure market."

New resorts

Air Canada Vacations is adding a number of new resorts this summer to its already large selection in Mexico and the Caribbean. Air Canada Vacations offers resorts in over 30 Sun destinations, including the popular Bahia Principe Hotels, and Sandals and Beaches resorts.

• In Puerto Vallarta, Iberostar Playa Mita opened in December 2013. This resort has something for every type of vacationer: it is perfectly located for world class golf, has a number of spa packages and is ideal for family travel.

• Secrets Puerto Los Cabos is a brand new resort in Los Cabos. It is an adults-only property, perfect for couples as it offers a free Secrets Wedding in Paradise Package and complimentary newlywed and anniversary packages.

• In Barbados, Almond Beach Resort is a beachfront resort encompassing low-rise Caribbean-style buildings encircling lush tropical gardens. This fully all-inclusive resort offers 135 rooms and features extensive facilities and activities for both families and couples. It has reopened under new management following renovations. The refurbishment project was executed by a full team under Sun Group management and included re-landscaping of the grounds and renovation of swimming pools.

Year-round service from Toronto to Grenada

New non-stop service from Toronto to Grenada began on March 3 and runs once per week all year. Grenada was a seasonal destination for Air Canada last year, with service from December to March. Now, with Air Canada rouge, flights to Grenada will be operated year round. Since Saturday and Sunday are favourite days to get married, the Monday departure to Grenada is particularly well suited to honeymoons.

Grenada is a great destination to spice things up: it is an ideal base for exploring centuries-old spice plantations and rum distilleries. Sandals La Source Grenada is brand-new, couples-only resort and is a popular choice for an all-inclusive.
