BermudAir adds Canada service with inaugural Toronto flight

BermudAir, Bermuda’s flagship airline, has launched service to Canada, beginning with flights to Toronto.

The inaugural flight to Pearson International Airport (YYZ) opening this latest route on BermudAir’s expanding network took place on May 17.

“Flying to Canada marks the latest phase of our strategic expansion of service for Bermuda,” said Adam Scott, founder and CEO of BermudAir. “Launching flights to Toronto today, along with service to Halifax next week, means that we now offer seven routes between Bermuda, Canada and the U.S. This extends year-round air service and capacity overall for residents and companies in Bermuda, while also providing convenient options to reach the island for inbound travellers.”

Weekly service from Toronto

BermudAir will provide direct service to Toronto three times a week: Tuesday, Friday and Sunday, with a flight time of just two and a half hours.

“Our team is excited to add this new service, which expands access for leisure and business travel to Bermuda with more direct flights and connectivity,” said Scott. “The market response we’re already seeing for this route indicates significant interest which is very encouraging. We’re now covering service gaps to the Canadian market that have been previously underserved. Our new routes provide links that will help grow tourism and business development between Bermuda and Canada.”

BermudAir’s team celebrated the inaugural flight to Toronto with gifts and Canada-themed food and beverages for passengers on board, along with a gate celebration on arrival at YYZ.

Officials from YYZ, led by Chief Commercial Officer and Interim COO Khalil Lamrabet, were also on hand in the terminal to greet the BermudAir flight and passengers. Speeches and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Adam Scott, Khalil Lamrabet and the Hon. Isabelle Ramsay-Brackstone Canada Consul General to Bermuda also formed part of the celebration.
