The Weather Network and its French counterpart MétéoMédia have announced the launch of Travel Planner, a tool that will provide desktop, mobile web, and Android app users with historical weather information for over 50 cities in 11 countries. It launches with the support of partners Air Canada and Aeroplan.
In addition to over 20 years of historical weather data, Travel Planner will also include curated travel content to inspire Canadians to explore the world.
The historical weather data is provided by Weather Source, a U.S. based organization dedicated to making hyper-local weather and climate data accessible around the globe and across all industries.
The Travel Planner was developed based on the findings of a survey of The Weather Network & MétéoMédia users that confirmed weather to be one of the most important considerations when picking a vacation destination.
With this information at their fingertips, Canadian travellers will be able to determine the best time of year to visit their preferred destinations and plan their experiences accordingly
"As Canada's most trusted source for weather information, we are continuing to innovate and deliver products that will help Canadians make smarter decisions," said Sam Sebastian, CEO of Pelmorex Corp. "For Canadians who have been looking forward to the return of travel, this planning tool will help make them as prepared as possible to fully enjoy their adventures."
Air Canada and Aeroplan have signed onto the project as the official and exclusive launch partners. Aeroplan and Air Canada's sponsorship for the Travel Planner on The Weather Network and MétéoMédia will run in MAY and JUN.
According to The Weather Network, as the Travel Planner continues to evolve, other popular destinations will be added to help inspire and prepare Canadians for their future travels.
