MORRISTOWN, NJ – Ireland and Britain’s largest tour operator has introduced air-inclusive guided vacations for Canadian travelers, thanks to a new partnership between CIE Tours International and Air Canada. The agreement enables CIE Tours to package competitively priced flights within its tour price for travel originating at any airport serviced by Air Canada with direct flights to Shannon or Dublin – a great convenience and value for Canadian customers who previously had to book flights separately.
In addition, those who book select guided vacations by Jan. 31 can take advantage of CIE Tours’ “2 for 1 Companion Flies Free” promotion (use promotion code TWOFORONE18C). The free nonstop companion flight is valid for Ireland departures April 1-May 31, 2018 and Sept. 15-Oct. 31, 2018, and Britain departures April 1 – Oct. 31, 2018.
CIE Tours’ new air-inclusive packages take advantage of Air Canada’s recent expansion of service to the Emerald Isle, just in time for the summer high season. The nation’s flagship carrier is launching two new Irish routes in June 2018 and increasing flights on existing services. For the first time, Air Canada will offer direct service between Montreal and Dublin as well as between Toronto and Shannon – each with four flights per week. In addition, non-stop Toronto-Dublin service will increase from four times per week to daily during the summer. Seasonal non-stop Vancouver-Dublin flights will also resume this summer with five-day-a-week service.
CIE Tours sells in Canadian dollars – a rarity for a U.S.-based company, and operates a website exclusively for the Canadian market.
