Air Canada Vacations has a Keen Eye on the Bahamas


Air Canada Vacations (ACV) recently met with members of the Bahamas Tourist Board to enhance their current product offerings and explore the expansion of access to the island.

“We have unrivaled operations to the Bahamas,” said Nino Montagnese, Managing Director, Sun Markets, Air Canada Vacations. “Not only do we offer year-round service to the islands’ capital city, we’re also the only Canadian tour operator to offer year-round service to beautiful Great Exuma.”

Currently, ACV offers daily, year-round service from Toronto to capital Nassau onboard Air Canada, and weekly, seasonal service from Montreal onboard Air Canada Rouge. Weekly, year-round service, as well as increased seasonal service, from Toronto to Great Exuma is also available onboard Air Canada.

“To top our extensive offering of vacations to the Bahamas, we’re working with the Bahamas Tourist Board on a new project scheduled to open this April,” added Montagnese. “This will provide more options for travel agents for vacation packages that fulfill all their clients’ desires.”

Details of the new project in collaboration with ACV and the Bahamas Tourist Board will soon be released in a grand reveal.
