More flights headed to New York City from Pearson Airport in Mississauga

Travellers looking to get away to the Big Apple this spring and summer have more options with this week’s announcement that Air Canada is adding two daily flights to the popular destination from Pearson Airport in Mississauga.

Pearson officials took to social media today (March 29) to let people know that bookings are now being accepted as Canada’s flagship carrier is offering the additional daily flights to JFK Airport in New York City.

The airport announced in January of this year that for the first time since prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2019, AmericanAir also began offering two daily flights from Pearson to JFK.

Canada’s largest airport has regularly reintroduced post-pandemic service to New York City over the past year or so.

Additionally, Air Canada also plans to restore 11 suspended trans-border flights and increase frequencies on 12 popular routes to the U.S. effective summer 2023 as it rebuilds its global network following the pandemic.

Last summer, Atlanta-based Delta Airlines, the biggest airline in the world, resumed its daily service from Pearson to New York City, offering three trips per day to JFK Airport.

It marked yet another resumption of flight service out of Pearson Airport as the travel industry ramped back up after the lifting earlier in 2022 of COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Around the same time, Canadian ultra-low fare airline Swoop saw its first-ever Mississauga-to-New York City flight take off from Pearson Airport.

The Calgary-based carrier operates service four times a week from Pearson to JFK.

Last April, Edmonton-based low-cost carrier Flair Airlines launched direct service from Pearson to JFK Airport.
