Any New Airlines To Yyz?

Fri Jan 11, 2002 10:05 am

Hey there! Just wondering if anyone knows if there are any new airlines comming to Toronto within the next year or so. I have heard a few rumors (Emirates, BMI, Virgin re-starting) but nothing definite.

Thanks for all your replys,

Emerites in 2003, virgin maybe for the summer, and Turkmenistan was supposed to start with 757 service.

I'd say in all likelyhood, Virgin will be back, possibly before the summer but I'd say 99% chance of them being back for the summer. Emirates will come in 2003 like Slawko said. BMI hasn't mentioned anything yet. Turkmenistan was supposed to start last year but didn't. I would say look for a startup or two as well to fill the C3 void. And finally, Westjet...

Sorry, but why would BMI compete on that route? They're part of the Star Alliance and codeshare with Air Canada on all Canada to London flights. Wouldn't this be defeating the purpose on an alliance.

thanks

Remember that AC operate YYZ-MAN and YYZ-GLA; if only people would remember that to travel long-haul to/from Britain does not mean going through London! There are some rumours that bmi may replace AC on the YYZ-MAN route.

Are you sure?I have never seen a BD codeshare on AC flights to London.

Also, one or two English charters (JMC/Airtours) will probably fly into YYZ to fill the void of C3, also from justplanes.com

Finnair should have their seasonal service to HEL during the summer operated on the B752.
