Travellers will soon be able to connect from downtown Toronto to Kitchener-Waterloo, Barrie and London, Ontario, in as little as 18 minutes with the addition of three new routes operating from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
Three additional destinations, offered through partner FlyGTA Airlines, will begin daily scheduled round-trip service this fall according to an announcement made today. Round-trip flights will depart Billy Bishop Airport from Hangar 6, just west of the main terminal building, for Kitchener-Waterloo and Barrie beginning November 6, with London flights commencing in December.
“The new flight routes announced today further connect Toronto to key markets which is great for our economy in terms of facilitating connections that fuel tourism and business,” said Councillor Michael Thompson, Ward 37, Chair of the Economic Development Committee, City of Toronto. “We are particularly excited about the daily service to Kitchener-Waterloo airport which supports our domestic technology corridor by offering an 18-minute flight between the two cities and provides US businesses with a convenient and efficient connection between such markets as New York and Kitchener-Waterloo through Toronto. Billy Bishop Airport is an important gateway for Toronto and a key piece of travel infrastructure that is needed to support Toronto’s growth and place as a world-class city.”
“Located less than three kilometres from downtown Toronto, Billy Bishop Airport has become an important gateway for businesses who need quick access to other markets,” said Gene Cabral, Executive Vice President, Billy Bishop Airport and PortsToronto. “With service to more than 20 destinations through our main terminal and connections to additional Ontario markets through our hangar facilities with partners such as FlyGTA, Billy Bishop Airport is about connecting Toronto to the world and working within a broader Southern Ontario Airport Network to ensure the travel needs of the region are met. We are very pleased that our service offering continues to grow and congratulate FlyGTA Airlines on its new services.”
