Canada Jetlines to add service between Toronto, Florida

2022-11-10 09:20 ET - News Release

Mr. Eddy Doyle reports


Canada Jetlines Operations Ltd. has confirmed a new international non-stop service out of its travel hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to Melbourne Orlando International Airport (MLB) in Florida.

The Canadian carrier's second route into the United States will launch starting with two flights per week and increased frequency to follow. Located 50 miles southeast of Orlando, MLB connects Florida visitors to Orlando, central Florida's Space Coast and Cocoa Beach. The new service out of Toronto will be Canada Jetlines' fourth non-stop route, following the announcement of Las Vegas. Operation of these flights is subject to final Federal Aviation Administration approval.

"Our Canada Jetlines family is thrilled to launch service to another exciting U.S. destination this winter -- continuing expansion of our international network of convenient leisure and business travel," stated Eddy Doyle, chief executive officer of Canada Jetlines. "Canada is one of the top countries for international tourists to central Florida, and we are pleased to connect Canadians to their favourite sun destinations as they begin to plan winter vacations."

"We are delighted to welcome Canada Jetlines to the Melbourne Orlando International Airport," said MLB executive director Greg Donovan. "Adding Canada Jetlines to our ever-growing roster of air service partners is an incredible win for MLB and the community we proudly serve. We are thrilled to offer this new service for visiting Canadians, making it easy for our guests to enjoy all that the Space Coast and central Florida have to offer. Between the added convenience for second homeowners or quick accessibility for our beloved snowbirds, the new service is well timed and appreciated."

"The addition of Jetlines to the roster for MLB is another great route from Toronto, Canada and a sign that the Space Coast is a hot destination internationally. We welcome them to the family and look forward to a long-lasting partnership," said Peter Cranis, executive director of the Space Coast Office of Tourism.

Flights are scheduled to commence on Jan. 19, 2023, with tickets now on sale on Canada Jetlines' website or available by contacting your favourite travel agency. Canada Jetlines will operate the route with its growing fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft, including its recently announced second aircraft, which is expected to be delivered by this December.

The announcement comes as work nears completion on the $72-million terminal renovation and expansion project at MLB. The project will provide major upgrades to the comfort and convenience of the MLB customer experience with the addition of 86,000 square feet of new facilities.

This new service will complement the airline's current operations of biweekly flights, operating Thursdays and Sundays out of Toronto (YYZ) to Calgary (YYC) from 7:55 a.m. EST to 10:10 a.m. MST and returns from Calgary (YYC) to Toronto (YYZ) from 11:40 a.m. MST to 5:20 p.m. EST.
