Here is the press release from the jetsgo website. Looks like YOW will connect through YYZ to YVR and EWR 2 flights a day during the week plus one on sunday. YYZ-YOW starting at $64 bucks is not a bad deal....Looks like they are also revising the schedule to timmins to fit in with the other flights...all in all seems pretty good....
Jetsgo links Ottawa to discount network
Service begins March 2
Jetsgo is expanding its network to Ottawa and improving service in Vancouver and Timmins, Ont. This growth will be made possible with the addition of a seventh Boeing Super 80 jet to the airline's fleet, extending service to an increasing number of Canadians.
A weekday Ottawa-Toronto schedule begins on March 3 with twice-daily return flights, plus one return flight on Sundays. This provides a flexible schedule for both business and leisure travelers. Connections from Toronto are available to Vancouver, Winnipeg, New York, Timmins, Halifax and Charlottetown.
"Ottawa is the largest market in Eastern Canada where Jetsgo is not yet flying," said Michel Leblanc, president of Jetsgo. "This destination will open up new routes and connections across our network, while offering Jetsgo's economical service to over 1 million people in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. We wanted to be able to effectively service a city of Ottawa's size before adding it to the Jetsgo family. With the addition of our seventh plane, we now have that capability."
Vancouver will also benefit from the addition of three weekly Toronto flights, starting March 2, while Timmins is improving its weekday schedule to Toronto, allowing for connections to Ottawa, Montreal, New York and Vancouver.
Examples of Jetsgo fares from Ottawa include Toronto starting at $64, Winnipeg starting at $122, Vancouver starting at $196 and New York starting at $113. These fares are the lowest available to Canadian consumers on these routes.
Jetsgo's first-ever flight took off on June 12, 2002. Since that time, five new destinations and four additional planes have contributed to the airline's goal of being the leading discount carrier in Eastern Canada.
"We have been able to grow profitably since our launch with the support of customers looking for an affordable air travel alternative," said Leblanc.
The Jetsgo fleet now consists of seven Boeing Super 80s operating in a 160-seat configuration. The Super 80 is one of the most efficient jets in the marketplace, operating with excellent fuel economy, low maintenance requirements and a quiet, comfortable cabin.
Cabin crews on all Jetsgo flights are bilingual, providing an added benefit for markets such as Ottawa and Timmins.
Headquartered in Montreal with 250 employees, Jetsgo offers discount air service to 10 Canadian destinations including Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. Service to the United States is to New York and Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
