MONTREAL, Oct. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada is expanding service to Venezuela and Trinidad and Tobago this spring with designated, non-stop flights to each country that will provide greater convenience and better connections for travellers. "Air Canada is meeting the growing demand for both business and leisure travel between Toronto and Caracas, Venezuela, and Port of Spain, Trinidad. Where previously we had a single flight serving both cities, this spring we are enhancing our service by commencing separate, non-stop flights for each destination. This will result in faster travel times, better connections and overall increased ease of travel for our customers," said Daniel Shurz, Vice President of Network Planning at Air Canada. "Customers travelling to and from Venezuela and Trinidad will be able to take advantage of Air Canada's extensive domestic, transborder and international network by connecting through our Toronto hub."
