Last minute travel: tickets to Las Vegas shows on Air Canada


Air Canada Vacations has partnered with another Canadian icon, Cirque du Soleil as well as MGM Resorts to get on with the show.

In celebration of the partnership, all passengers who book an Air Canada Vacations package to Las Vegas between October 23 and November 15, 2014 will receive free tickets to a Cirque du Soleil performance. But there’s more. Didn’t have time to book the show tickets before booking your Vegas getaway?

Now, says Air Canada Vacations, travellers will have the ability to book best-priced tickets for all eight spectacular Cirque du Soleil shows either when they book their Air Canada Vacations packages or, for more spontaneous travellers, directly from their seats aboard Air Canada rouge flights to Las Vegas. The in-flight booking program for Cirque du Soleil tickets, the first of its kind in Canada, will start January 1, 2015 from Montreal, with a view to expanding across Canada in the future.

According to Michael Friisdahl, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Canada Leisure Group, “Air Canada rouge operates 38 direct flights a week from Canadian cities to Las Vegas, making it one of our most popular destinations. We know that our passengers want access to the best Cirque du Soleil shows at the best prices, and we are delighted to add this new program to the list of services—things like airport transfers and great car rental packages—that we already provide our Vegas clients. We are proud to launch the program in Montreal where Cirque du Soleil began, and look forward to expanding the program to other cities soon.”

To celebrate the launch of this program, every passenger who books a package to Las Vegas with Air Canada Vacations from now until November 15, 2014, and completes their travel before April 9, 2015, will receive a free ticket to one of three Cirque du Soleil performances: KÀ at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, Zarkana at ARIA Resort & Casino, or Zumanity, The Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil at New York-New York Hotel & Casino.

“We are excited about this partnership and this is our way of kicking it off in typical Vegas fashion” added Friisdahl. “No matter where in Canada you book from, no matter what hotel you stay in, as long as you book your trip to Las Vegas with Air Canada Vacations by November 15, 2014 you will be seeing a spectacular show as our treat.”
