Ontarians looking to escape the province via their airport of choice can now use a long-awaited luxury motorcoach service that will shuttle them between three southern Ontario airports.

The bus service provided by Air Canada, announced earlier this year, is the byproduct of a partnership between the Canadian airline and U.S.-based motorcoach service Landline.

The program is primarily built on ease of transport between  Pearson International Airport in Mississauga, John C. Munro International Airport in Hamilton and the Region of Waterloo International Airport.

Air Canada ensures the public the red tape surrounding travel bookings will be integrated into the service as well, meaning the pre-booking process remains active while traveling on the ground, allowing passengers to skip screening at any of the three stops. 

Passengers who choose to travel between airports using Landline’s motorcoaches “will enjoy similar benefits as those who opt for air-only connections: a convenient single itinerary when departing Hamilton or the Region of Waterloo, disruption protection and Aeroplan earning opportunities,” said Ranbir Singh, director regional airlines and markets for Air Canada, in an official statement.

According to both Air Canada and Landline, each motorcoach has 36 leather seats and onboard wifi. Shuttles are also fully accessible and include power lifts for those who use mobility aids to travel.

Beyond that, the motorcoach service is free, contingent upon a flight purchase.

“In addition to premium onboard amenities and a protected flight connection on every trip, passengers can now book and ride our luxury motorcoach for no additional cost when paired with their Air Canada flight,” said Landline vice-president Nick Johnson in a statement. 

As many airports continue to see an increase in customer traffic, it remains to be seen if other airlines will introduce similar bus shuttle service.
