Mark Galardo, Senior Vice President, Network Planning and Revenue Management, Air Canada, said:

Air Canada’s new service from Toronto Island to Ottawa will conveniently link Canada’s capital directly with the centre of the country’s leading business centre. 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 national carrier of Canada will directly compete with Porter Airlines on Toronto Island-Ottawa route. Porter Airlines, which exclusively operates from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, offers 7 daily flights to Ottawa.

Air Canada presently operates 5 daily flights between Toronto Island and Montréal. Passengers travelling on Air Canada flights from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport can take advantage of its 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.

Meanwhile, Air Canada has resumed nonstop flights to India following a 5-month flight ban.
