AC adds NYC lift

Air Canada is launching triple-daily, non-stop flights between Toronto Pearson and New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport beginning May 3, 2012 and will increase to hourly its flights to LaGuardia Airport. The new services further secure Air Canada’s position as the leading airline serving New York City and makes it the only carrier that operates to all three major New York City area airports: John F. Kennedy International Airport, LaGuardia Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport. Air Canada, which began flying to New York 71 years ago, will operate up to 38 non-stop return flights a day between Canada and New York City this summer. Beginning May 1, 2012, Air Canada will add an additional daily return flight between Toronto and LaGuardia, providing customers convenient hourly service each business day. The new Toronto-JFK service will be operated by Air Canada Express using a 50-seat CRJ regional jet. The JFK flights will have early morning, afternoon and evening arrivals and departures.
