Flights to sunny south, Europe and U.S. west coast resume at Pearson Airport in Mississauga

Entering the busy holiday travel season, Pearson Airport in Mississauga is now offering numerous additional flights to destinations that include the sunny south, the U.S. west coast and Europe.

Canada’s second-largest carrier, WestJet, has restarted flights to Curacao and Holguin, Cuba in the Caribbean effective this week.

In August, the airline announced the return of 17 sunny destination routes from Canadian airports during the winter, including two out of Pearson Airport.

Starting Nov. 5, weekly flights from Pearson to Cayo Coco in Cuba will resume while Dec. 17 marks the return of weekly flights to Samana, Dominican Republic.

Calgary-based WestJet had shelved the routes more than two years ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Officials with the airline say the return of the flights gives Canadians more travel options.

“The restart of these routes is another positive step in the restoration of our network as we solidify WestJet as the reliable, friendly and affordable airline we are known to be,” John Weatherill, WestJet executive vice-president and chief commercial officer, said earlier. “We recognize the past three winters have been disruptive to our guests’ travel plans and we look forward to reconnecting Canadians to some of the warmer destinations they have missed the most.”

Meanwhile, as of Oct. 30, Eurowings Discover (in place of Lufthansa until summer 2023) is operating daily flights from Pearson to Frankfurt, Germany.

Also, United Airlines has brought back flights from Pearson to San Francisco for those who want a fix of the romantic northern California city by the bay.
