Travellers wanting to visit one of America’s most beloved and popular destinations have more options now that a relatively new Canadian leisure airline based at Pearson Airport in Mississauga has expanded its flight schedule.
Canada Jetlines, which operated its first-ever flight on Sept. 22, 2022 from Pearson to Calgary, is launching service to Orlando, Florida, the home of Disney World, this coming Monday.
Four weekly flights will be available departing on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, officials with the airline said in a news release.
Following that, the carrier will begin flights to Montego Bay, Jamaica on Nov. 5, adding to its list of southern destinations that already includes Cancun and Las Vegas.
Canada Jetlines officials say the addition of Orlando represents “a significant milestone in Canada Jetlines’ mission to provide enhanced leisure travel options for Canadians.”
They noted that Orlando is recognized as America’s most-visited destination, welcoming some 74 million visitors in 2022.
Carrier officials add that as the demand for air travel continues to increase, they’re seeking to cater to the shifting preferences of Canadian travellers by expanding Canada Jetlines’ schedule to include more sought-after destinations.
Canada Jetlines CEO Eddy Doyle said in a news release that the new route to Orlando further solidifies the company’s commitment to making travel accessible and enjoyable for passengers.
“We eagerly anticipate connecting even more Canadians with the incredible experiences that Orlando has to offer,” he added.
As of Nov. 5, the airline will offer weekend service between Pearson and Montego Bay on its 174-seat Airbus A320 aircraft. Beginning next January, service will be increased to three flights each week.
Additionally, year-round service to Cancun will be increased to four weekly flights (from the current three flights) starting next February.
As the company continues to grow, it added a third large aircraft to its fleet this past summer when it took delivery of another Airbus A320.
It took almost 10 years, but Canada Jetlines finally got its inaugural flight off the ground at Pearson in late 2022. The carrier initially formed in 2013, but it had trouble getting planes into the air until last year.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
