Dublin is the fourth European destination unveiled for Air Canada rouge, which will begin flying this July to Edinburgh, Venice, Athens and a number of Caribbean destinations.

With more than 4 million Canadians claiming ancestral links or affiliations with the island of Ireland, Canada is an important market for tourism.

DAA Strategy Director Vincent Harrison said "Air Canada’s decision to operate a year-round service to Dublin from next May is excellent news for both business and leisure travellers and underscores the strong links between Ireland and Canada. Ireland is the fifth largest recipient of Canadian investment, and there are strong historical and cultural connections between the two countries. This is the culmination of much hard work as we have been working to secure a year-round Canadian service for several years."

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said "The announcement of a year-round service from Toronto to Dublin is wonderful news for tourism to the island of Ireland from Canada. We have worked with Air Canada for many years and we look forward to working closely with Air Canada rouge to maximize the promotion of this flight. As an island, direct, convenient and competitive access services are critical to achieving growth in inbound tourism. Tourism Ireland is committed to working with Air Canada rouge, Dublin Airport and other tourism interests, through co-operative marketing, to drive demand for this service."
