ACV debuts Ultimate Escapes Collection this winter

Air Canada Vacations will showcase its luxury side with the Ultimate Escapes Collection, a new product line featuring a selection of the tour operator’s most exclusive properties.

The first-ever brochure will offer travellers luxury escapes with 43 handpicked properties in 15 destinations across Mexico, the Caribbean and the USA.

Accommodations include ocean-facing suites and villas with private round-trip transfers, as well as the option to dine from the menus of award-winning chefs, enjoy vast wine lists, butler service and more.

“Everyone has lux hotels in their main brochure and while we’ll continue to do that, we’re highlighting some of the resorts that are really unique,” Nino Montagnese, managing director at Air Canada Vacations, told PAX. “Travel agents and customer alike have identified that some of these hotels in the main brochure were getting lost. People don’t want to have to go looking for something.”

Serving as a showcase for properties rated “above a five-star,” featured hotels in the Ultimate Escapes Collection include Hermitage Bay in Antigua & Barbuda, Saint Lucia’s Jade Mountain Resort, the Wynn and Encore Las Vegas and the Royal Hawaiian.

All packages come with round-trip flights aboard Air Canada or Air Canada Rouge, departing from 64 Canadian cities, as well as complimentary advance seat selection, preferred seating when available, priority check-in and boarding, and a one-time bonus of 1,500 Altitude Qualifying Miles for Air Canada Altitude members. Groups can also choose to elevate their Ultimate Escape by booking a 58-seat private jet with Air Canada Jetz.

Agents can now book on or through their GDS.
