Canadian Affair announces 75% boost to Ottawa & Halifax seat capacity

Non-stop flights from just £298 return (incl. taxes)
February 22, 2011

Canadian Affair is adding 75% more capacity on its routes from Gatwick to both Ottawa and Halifax this summer, and will also continue to grow its other popular routes.

The UK's largest tour operator to Canada will operate larger aircraft on its weekly non-stop services to both Ottawa and Halifax, using state-of-the-art two-class Airbus A330s in place of the smaller Boeing 757.

This will give UK travellers an extra 9,000 seats to choose from over the summer.  Flights start at just £298 return (incl. taxes) and with Canadian Affair’s lowest price guarantee, passengers can be assured that they won’t find a lower price anywhere else.

The flights will be operated by Thomas Cook Airlines, whose A330 aircraft offer personal TV screens at every luxury leather seat. Meals and 20kg of hold luggage allowance are complimentary, and passengers can upgrade to TC Premium class where they can enjoy a dedicated check-in area, separate cabin, wider seats, increased seat pitch, enhanced meals, a complimentary bar service, and a host of other added extras including 30kg of hold luggage allowance.

Kathryn Munro, Canadian Affair's Communication & Marketing Director, said: "Increasing capacity on routes where there is sufficient demand helps us to offer travellers more seats at our lowest prices, and state-of-the-art aircraft with many onboard amenities.

“Tourism in both these Canadian cities will get a huge boost from our capacity increase.  We have been committed to offering the lowest cost and highest quality flights to Canada for over 15 years and we will continue to develop our route network to meet customer demand.”

Return Economy Class fares from Gatwick to Halifax and Ottawa start from just £298, and child discounts are available. Upgrades to TC Premium start from just £199 return including taxes.
