Air Canada's new, weekly seasonal service from Toronto Pearson Airport to Eagle County Regional Airport in Colorado, serving the Vail ski region, was welcomed on Saturday 14 December by (almost) clear blue skies, a ribbon-cutting and some cookies.
- Air Canada is offering its passengers two new seasonal routes, one for ski enthusiasts and one for winter sun lovers. On Saturday 14 December the airline launched weekly flights on the 2,310-kilometre route from Toronto (YYZ) to Eagle/Vail, CO (EGE), and on the 2,565-kilometre route from Halifax (YHZ) to Fort Lauderdale, FL (FLL). An A319 is used on the Colorado route which operates until 5 April, while an E190 serves the Florida route until 26 April. No other carrier serves either route. This year Eagle County Regional Airport expects to handle around 350,000 passengers, up around 3% on last year’s figure.
