"Having quality and durable luggage while traveling on a constant basis is important for our flight attendants," said Anup Anand, Director, In-Flight Service Base Operations for Air Canada. "By partnering with a brand like Bentley, we are able to find a solution that meets our needs."

With so many potential candidates to choose from, it was an extensive process for Air Canada to find a trusted partner for the crew's luggage. Bentley stood out in meeting the airline's requirements for a superior cabin crew luggage design. "Bentley's ability to work with our team was critical in the design process," continues Anand. "We needed to create a unique set of luggage with components that would make this set of cabin crew luggage one of the most functional to date. I am very pleased with the level of customer service and commitment that Bentley has provided us and I look forward to a successful relationship going forward."

Bentley worked closely with Air Canada to design a custom set of high quality luggage featuring ballistic nylon and polyester materials, long lasting wheels and durable zippers that have the ability to resist the rigors of daily airline travel.

"As a Canadian owned and operated company, Bentley is proud to supply cabin crew luggage to Canada's largest passenger airline. With close to three decades of experience in supplying and servicing quality luggage, we are honored to be able to provide Air Canada's flight attendants peace of mind when travelling. We feel privileged to have been able to work closely with Air Canada to design top quality cabin crew luggage that is perfectly matched for their everyday needs. Over the next five years, we look forward to making this a successful partnership." says Michel Lantagne, Vice-President of Corporate Sales for Bentley.
