The phenomenal growth continues at London International with today's announcement that Air Canada will be adding daily flights to Calgary.
"Today's announcement is fantastic news for travelers in southwestern Ontario" says Mike Seabrook, CEO at London International Airport. "Air Canada continues to demonstrate their commitment to our region and have been steadily increasing the number of destinations that they serve from London. The daily non-stop flights will allow passengers a short flight time to Calgary as well as providing convenient connections to other Western Canada destinations. With our "Easy and Comfortable" approach to travel at London International passengers are going to love this new service."
London International is gearing up for its busiest year and travelers can expect the following additions:
Air Canada's Daily Flights to Calgary - Flights will be operated onboard Air Canada Rouge's A319 aircraft with a choice of two cabins, Wi-Fi options and in-flight entertainment streamed to personal devices. Air Canada has added these non-stop services between the considerable southern Ontario market (London) and Alberta to offer both convenient point-to-point travel, as well as easy connections at the Calgary hub to and from destinations throughout Alberta and BC including Vancouver Island. The new service is seasonal and will operate from June 24, 2019 until mid-October.
Swoop - Swoop will begin serving Londoners daily with three new domestic destinations including Edmonton, Abbotsford, and Halifax. Service to Edmonton will begin April 28th, with service to Abbotsford and Halifax beginning May 24th. Swoop is Canada's leading ultra-low-cost airline, independently operated as part of the WestJet Group of companies. Swoop operates a modern fleet of six Boeing 737-800 aircraft, equipped with in-seat power and Wi-Fi connectivity.
London International is emerging as the gateway airport in southern Ontario and now has non-stop domestic service to Abbotsford (Vancouver), Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax.
"We're looking forward to providing passengers an even easier and more comfortable way to fly" says Seabrook. We had a record year for passengers in 2018 and we know there's considerable growth ahead. We will continue to provide an exceptional passenger experience that encourages more people from southern Ontario to use our Airport".
