Toronto - New York

With Porter Airlines now up to 12 flights per day from Toronto City Airport to New York Newark, Air Canada, flying the flag for Star Alliance, has hit back with a new commuter service from Lester Pearson International Airport to JFK.  Air Canada is now unique in serving all three major New York airports, the aforementioned plus LaGuardia.

The Toronto – JFK flights are operated by Air Canada Express using a 50-seat CRJ regional jet.  The JFK service, using Terminal 7, will have early morning, mid-day and evening arrivals and departures.  With the new operation, Air Canada will offer a total of up to 38 return flights a day to the New York metropolitan area from Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver.

Air Canada's New York service, with hourly flights, is ideally-suited for business travellers.  Customers will have a choice of three airports across the New York City region, the option to purchase flight passes, access to Maple Leaf or Star Alliance partner lounges at all airports with priority ground services where applicable.  In addition, Air Canada flights to LaGuardia and Newark feature Executive Class; the only Canadian airline offering Business Class service. www.aircanada.com
