Air Canada has signed an agreement with Porsche Cars Canada to be the exclusive vehicle supplier of the Air Canada Chauffeur Service at Toronto-Pearson. The service is offered to select Signature Class customers connecting to Asia, Europe and South America.

Eligible connecting International Signature Class customers arriving from within Canada will be met by a concierge before being whisked away on the tarmac in a Porsche vehicle to the Air Canada Signature Suite.

The fleet of vehicles will be electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, including the Porsche Taycan, Panamera and Cayenne, supporting Air Canada's commitment to reach a goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions throughout its global operations by 2050.

"We're excited to re-launch another key dimension of our Signature Service for international customers, anchored by our industry-leading Air Canada Signature Suite in Toronto's Pearson Airport. Thanks to our partnership with Porsche, customers flying in International Signature Class can now experience their exciting and uncompromising vehicles," said Scott O'Leary, Vice President, Loyalty & Product at Air Canada, in an April 21 press release. "As we continue to restart key international routes, we look forward to welcoming our customers at Toronto Pearson with this one-of-a-kind airport premium experience in Canada, in partnership with one of the world's most iconic luxury car brands."

With the restart of many international routes in response to border measures being eased worldwide, Air Canada has welcomed back International Signature Service customers to its exclusive Air Canada Signature Suite and its range of services, such as a menu curated by Chef David Hawksworth and exclusive wines selected by VĂ©ronique Rivest.

Following the re-opening of the Air Canada Signature Suite at Vancouver International Airport later this spring, the Air Canada Chauffeur Service in partnership with Porsche is planned to be introduced later in 2022.
