Airlines from around the globe have created new routes to connect travellers to Vancouver. A return to the skies does not just mean a return of existing routes, but an opportunity for air travel to expand their networks, and these companies have done exactly that.
Brand-new to the aviation market, Canada Jetlines flies between Toronto and Vancouver. This low-cost carrier started its services in September 2022 and has flights between the two major hubs twice weekly.
For the first time ever, Toronto based airline, Porter Airlines, will launch its longest route it’s offered in its 16-year history. The low-cost carrier will offer direct flights from Pearson beginning this February, with frequent services, averaging 3 flights daily.
Air Canada has restarted their direct Miami to Vancouver flights, with its last operation dating back to 2018. Flights will be coming in 3 times weekly and reducing to 2 between mid-May to late October.
In late November of 2022, YVR welcomed Fiji Airways’ inaugural flight from Nadi International Airport. Vancouver is the airline’s first Canadian destination, with its non-stop service coming in twice weekly, year-round.
