It's time for "Plane Talk".
London, April 8 2019 - LIA now offers non-stop flights to Abbotsford (Vancouver), Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax and many seasonal southern destinations. LIA is set to experience triple digit growth over the next year with flights from Air Canada, WestJet, Swoop, Air Canada Rouge, Air Transat, and Sunwing Airlines.
"The landscape of air travel in Southern Ontario has seen a fundamental shift in the recent past", says Michael Seabrook, President and CEO of London International Airport. "Canada's busiest airport, Toronto Pearson, has experienced explosive growth and is reaching operational capacity. With the new non-stop flights recently announced passengers are able to fly throughout Canada without the need to connect through Toronto. Our region of Southern Ontario is close to 1.5 million residents and our market can support the growing list of non- stop destinations."
That leads to Plane Talk! - Our region working together to build better air services. Plane Talk is a coordinated effort to ensure that individuals and organizations from our region are aware of the new non-stop flights from London.
"Good air service is a huge contributor to our city's economy" says Ed Holder, Mayor of London, "My office is committed to supporting Plane Talk and to do our part in helping spread the word about these new flights.
Greater connectivity in London helps our residents travel more freely, makes us more attractive to business development, and helps in the creation of many high quality jobs. If you have a choice, you should try flying out of London International. You will be supporting our local economy and these new non-stop flights offer maximum convenience."
Organizations that have joined the Plane Talk movement include:
- The London Economic Development Corporation
- Ed Holder, Mayor of London
- The St. Thomas Chamber of Commerce
- Southwest Ontario Tourism Corporation
- The London Convention Centre
- The London Chamber of Commerce
- Tourism London
