Canada Jetlines Operations has confirmed a new route out of its travel hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) with direct service to Vancouver International Airport (YVR).
Starting December 2022, Canada Jetlines will begin Airbus A320 service from Toronto to Vancouver. The new route is aimed at providing more accessible travel within Canada, connecting the lower mainland and southern Ontario, operating twice weekly. Vancouver International Airport serves Vancouver and its surrounding cities and is the second busiest airport in Canada in terms of passenger traffic behind Toronto Pearson Airport.
“Following the launch of a successful first route out of Toronto, we look forward to expanding our services into Vancouver ahead of the upcoming holiday travel season,” shared Duncan Bureau, chief commercial officer of Canada Jetlines. “We seek to provide Canadian travelers with more convenient travel options and look forward to bringing the country’s newest leisure airline to YVR.”
“We look forward to welcoming Canada Jetlines to YVR, providing more connections to Toronto and southern Ontario for travelers to visit family and friends,” said Mike McNaney, vice president and chief external affairs office at Vancouver Airport Authority. “We are excited about the options this new airline is offering from YVR, just in time for the holiday season and throughout the year.”
This new service will complement the airline’s operations of biweekly flights, operating Thursdays and Sundays out of Toronto (YYZ) to Calgary (YYC) from 07:55 a.m. EST to 10:10 a.m. MST and returns from Calgary (YYC) to Toronto (YYZ) 11:40 a.m. MST to 17:20 p.m. EST.
