They fly to Vancouver. I've heard rumors that they are interested in Calgary and Toronto, but these are 2-year old rumors that I am just perpetuating.

HP used to fly to Calgary in the mid/late 80's but it was discontinued after some months.

The daily flight to YVR is to Phoenix, on a 737-300.

On the signs along the approach road to Pearson which show each airline that comes into YYZ it lists america west but I have nevers een on here, I think that they might code share with one of the other ailines, don't know which

YWG777:

You hear the exact same rumor for every airline that 'might' be coming to Canada. I think it is time you look for a new info source.

A little research before you post might be a good idea.

Here's Your Answer

Yes, America West does fly to Canada. They currently fly to Vancouver (YVR). There are two flights daily, both using A319 equipment. The first flight departs at around 8am, and the next at about lunch time from YVR. The arrivals come in at late-morning, and at 10pm into YVR.
Hope this clears it up.

Yes you are right about that. I was jsut checking YVR Flights. I am sure that its a 737-300 not a 319. Please correct me if I am wrong. Thanks

Just check them out on the web at www.americawest.com. They have a route map on their website. They are talking about more flights to Canada as well.

I don't know about their plans, but I would think Canada would be an excellent market for HP to try to expand into. If they could contract out everything on the ground (including gate agents from another airline, etc) I think they would have tonnes of potential to fly to the prairies from PHX during the winter. If they could get an impulse buying market (ie-weekend trips) they'd do fine, although I'm not sure they'd compete well with holiday packages by the charters for trips planned a lot in advance. There is also potential for selling it as a summer market too. Also, sheer size would indicate YYZ as a great market for a couple flights a day year round. I kind of think that if they can make YVR (one of the warmer cities in Canada) work to PHX, they could make other (colder) cities work quite nicely. But that's just my opinion, I have no idea if they're going to do anything on that.

HP would be good in YWG. That is where they maintance their 320's. I just makes sense for them to fly here from PHX. There is alot of PAX that go there all year round.
