Air Canada resumed service from the Toronto Island airport in downtown Toronto yesterday, providing travellers with additional options for flying between Toronto and Montreal. The new service, operated by Sky Regional Airlines Inc., complements Air Canada’s Rapidair service between Montreal and Pearson International Airport.
From the island airport, AC will provide up to 15 daily non-stop return flights hourly between 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. from Toronto and between 6:45 a.m. and 8:45 p.m. from Montreal. Flights are aboard Bombardier Q-400 aircraft with leather seats, complimentary bar service and snacks. In Toronto, a complimentary, regularly scheduled shuttle bus service is available between the Fairmont Royal York Hotel and the Toronto city airport.
Sky Regional flights will fly under the new Air Canada Express brand, which will be applied to all Air Canada regional services operating under a capacity purchase agreement. The livery will be gradually adopted by Air Canada’s regional airline Jazz over a five-year period, starting with the introduction of their new fleet of Q400 aircraft on June 1.
