New flights take off for the Big Apple from Pearson Airport in Mississauga

Two daily flights from Pearson Airport in Mississauga to New York City are being added to give travellers heading south of the border more options.

The airport announced yesterday (Jan. 10) that for the first time since prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2019, AmericanAir will offer the daily flights from Pearson to JFK Airport in the Big Apple.

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

Last month, Air Canada announced it was increasing service between Pearson and JFK effective March 26.

Additionally, Air Canada will also 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 Airport.

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