Air Canada’s New YVR-MIA Service A Game Changer For West Coast Cruise Bookings

Excitement levels were high at an Air Canada Vacations’ cruise event at Burnaby’s event space for everyone’s inner child, the Rec Room. Open Jaw was on hand when some 50 travel agents from across the Lower Mainland let loose to play in the Rec Room’s “adult playland” of video games, pool tables and dart boards.

And when they were given the scoop about Air Canada’s new direct Vancouver-Miami service, which launches on 17DEC, as Open Jaw has reported.

“Our brand new Vancouver-Miami non-stop service will be operating three times a week and it’s ideal for cruise-lovers,” enthused ACV’s general manager for sales in Western Canada, Marigold Frontuna.

Representatives from the cruise industry were also on hand at the event to share all the latest cruise news with the region’s agents – brimming with enthusiasm about how non-stop AC flights to MIA bring West Coast advisors’ clients that much conveniently closer to the hub of Caribbean cruising.

“It’s very important for us to bring our cruise partners together right now because the pandemic hit the sector pretty hard and it’s vital that we all connect again in person,” said Frontuna.

“And it’s so important to reconnect with our travel agent partners face-to-face again, because they are the heartbeat of the industry. We want to make sure they have all the right tools and information so that they can continue to sell the cruise products they love.”

Frontuna’s enthusiasm and excitement was echoed by industry representatives who were happy to be rubbing shoulders with the Lower Mainland’s hard-working agents once again.
