Air Canada identified as business travelers’ top choice airline
AIR CANADA is the preferred airline for domestic travel for 92 percent of frequent business travelers, according to the Ipsos Reid 2018 Canadian Business Traveller Survey.
The national study determined Air Canada is the only Canadian airline to see a consistent increase in preference and in usage for the past five years.
Additionally, readers of leading frequent business traveler magazine Business Traveler have named Air Canada “Best North American Airline for International Travel,” as well as “Best North American Airline for Inflight Experience,” solidifying Air Canada’s position as the preferred airline for business travel.
“On behalf of our 30,000 employees worldwide, I thank our customers for choosing Air Canada in growing numbers, and we look forward to welcoming them onboard North America’s only international four-star airline as affirmed by global air transport rating organization Skytrax, for their next flight,” Air Canada chief commercial officer and executive vice president Lucie Guillemette said in a statement.
Why do business travelers fancy Air Canada over other airlines?
Aside from an attractive frequent flyer reward program, convenient flight schedule, and top notch customer service, Air Canada also offers a range of tools, services, news, offers, and exclusive advantages for business travelers.
