    Members can take advantage of three great deals: discounted airfares depending on class of travel

    In August 2016, the Netherlands-Canada Chamber of Commerce (NCCC) announced three special offers for companies being members of the NCCC when travelling to Canada in the coming eight months. Delivering added value for members is a core principle for the NCCC, which is why we developed, together with member Air Canada, this special program. Now members can enjoy a host of business, networking and industry events on both sides of the Atlantic.

    NCCC has partnered with Air Canada (AC) and is pleased to offer members who visit Canada a special discount on airfares. AC operates daily flights from Amsterdam to Toronto (with reduced frequencies in the Winter). Visitors to Canada can search for flights and book online at
    www.aircanada.com and will secure a discounted rate by putting one of the codes listed in the member-only area in the offer code box.

    Joost Hasperhoven, Manager Benelux for Air Canada says:”Air Canada’s award-winning service is recognized by many NCCC members already and I hope our special offers will encourage much more of our fellow-members to make the trip to Canada in the coming months.” 

    The three discount packages are available to book until 31st December 2016 and travel must be completed by 31st March 2017. For full details and to find the discount codes, please visit the member-only area of the website after logging in.
