Air Canada began flights from Toronto Pearson to Memphis on 1 May. While Grizz (official mascot from local basketball team the Memphis Grizzlies) helped out at check-in, local Canadian restaurant Kooky Canuck provided some nanaimo bars for the inaugural flight passengers.
Savannah Airport celebrated with a cake and ribbon cutting the start of Air Canada’s daily service from Toronto Pearson. The route, launched 1 May, will be flown on the airline’s CRJ 200s and faces no direct competition.
- Air Canada on 1 May commenced three new transborder routes from Toronto Pearson (YYZ) – Memphis (MEM), San Antonio (SAT) and Savannah (SAV). The 2,290-kilometre link to San Antonio in Texas, the longest of the three routes launched this week, will be flown on the Star Alliance member’s fleet of E175s, while the 1,305-kilometre city pairing with Memphis in Tennessee and the 1,291-kilometre sector to Savannah in Georgia will operate on the airline’s CRJ 200s. All flown daily according to OAG schedules, none of Air Canada’s three new routes will face direct competition. See how Savannah Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
