All flights provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption, Star Alliance reciprocal benefits and, for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access at the Montreal hub, priority boarding, and other benefits.

“We are very pleased to offer the only non-stop, year-round flights connecting Montreal and Bogotá, two vibrant cities steeped in history and culture,” says Mark Galardo, vice president of network planning at Air Canada. “This new route complements our existing Toronto-Bogotá service, and positions Air Canada as a significant player linking the growing markets between Montreal and Colombia’s capital and largest city.

“The addition of Bogotá represents Air Canada’s 39th new route launched from Montreal-Trudeau Airport since 2012, firmly illustrating our commitment to developing Montreal as an important, strategic hub. Bogotá is also strategically situated to allow for seamless travel across South America through Star Alliance partner Avianca,”

Bogotá is highlighted by the city’s cultural downtown area, La Candelaria, known for its cobblestoned streets, packed with tourists. La Candelaria is a mix of beautifully preserved colonial buildings, museums, restaurants, bars, hotels, churches, and 300-year-old houses.
