Air Canada is launching a new service between Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport and Ottawa beginning Oct. 31, 2021.
Initially, the route will offer four return trips daily, increasing to up to eight return trips daily starting in summer 2022.
Mark Galardo, senior vice president, network planning and revenue management at Air Canada, said that the “new service from Toronto Island to Ottawa will conveniently link Canada’s capital directly with the centre of the country’s leading business centre.”
Galardo continued: “This new route is designed to meet customer demand in this heavily travelled market, with a large business travel component, and complement our recently resumed Montreal-Toronto Island airport service. It is a further example of how Air Canada is rebuilding its network, including by adding new routes and destinations in our determination to emerge from the pandemic an even stronger airline.”
The service will be operated by Air Canada Express Jazz with a De Havilland Dash 8-400 featuring a complimentary snack and drink.
All customers can collect and redeem Aeroplan Points through Canada’s leading loyalty program when travelling with Air Canada, and eligible customers have access to priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounges where available at Canadian airports, priority boarding and other benefits. Air Canada’s commercial schedule may be adjusted as required based on the COVID-19 trajectory and government restrictions.
Air Canada offers its customers complimentary shuttle bus service between downtown and the Toronto City Airport. The shuttle brings travellers to and from the west entrance of The Fairmont Royal York Hotel, located at the corner of Front and York streets, directly across from Union Station.
Air Canada also operates five return flights daily between Toronto Island and Montreal.
