Celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday with an over-the-top 'Apres in the Air' Vacation

Experience Canada’s most sought after destinations with a once-in-a-lifetime luxury adventure

NEW YORK, NY (February 1, 2017)

In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Air Canada have partnered to unveil an extraordinary new package, Après in the Air, a collection of offerings and experiences that provide unparalleled access and adventure at three of Fairmont’s most iconic Canadian properties.

The ‘Après in the Air’ package includes a round trip for 58 people by private charter with Air Canada’s all Business Class private charter service, Jetz, and stays at the iconic Fairmont Château Laurier, Fairmont Le Château Montebello, and Fairmont Tremblant. The adventure begins with the transformation of the private jet into a rich, cozy Fairmont-inspired ski chalet, creating the ultimate “après ski” experience at 30,000 feet, and continues once wheels touch down in Canada.

Each Fairmont destination offers a bevy of memory-making winter activities and local experiences including dog sledding, ice skating, snowmobiling, ice fishing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, skiing, and curling. Guests will also be able to enjoy luxurious pool and spa treatments at the world’s largest log cabin, Fairmont Le Château Montebello; explore the scenic village at the foot of the mountain from Fairmont Tremblant, and feel instantly transported to a French château amidst the nation’s capital at the landmark Fairmont Château Laurier.

To highlight Fairmont’s traditional Canadian heritage, inspired cuisine from notable Canadian chefs Louis Simard, Tim Wasylko, and Éric Beaupré is featured at each respective stop on the journey. The chefs of each property (who are all well known in their own right – one was the former chef of the Prime Minister!) curate special Canadian dining experiences at each destination. Culinary experiences include a Great Canadian Birthday Dinner at Fairmont Château Laurier, a formal Heritage Dinner inspired by the late 19th century at Fairmont Le Château Montebello, and a traditional Quebecois “Sugar Shack” dinner at Fairmont Tremblant.
