Air Canada welcomes improved access to Toronto City Centre Airport

TORONTO, Feb. 2 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada today welcomed the announcement by the Toronto Port Authority (TPA) of improved access to the Toronto City Centre Airport (TCCA).

The TPA today announced the construction of new Ferry Passenger Transfer Facilities as well as the acquisition of a new ferry capable of carrying more vehicles and passengers to TCCA. "As Toronto City Center Airport's longest serving passenger airline, Air Canada is pleased that the TPA has decided to improve access to the airport. This decision will allow Air Canada, through its regional partner, Air Canada Jazz, to re-instate flights previously cancelled due to the lack of demand caused by inadequate access to the airport under the existing ferry service," said Ben Smith, Vice-President, Network Planning, Air Canada. With the improved access to Toronto City Centre Airport, Air Canada will pursue a substantial increase of frequencies between that airport and Ottawa as well as the reinstatement of flights to and from Montreal. The carrier will also examine the feasibility of additional flights between TCCA and other regional destinations in Canada and the U.S.

Air Canada and Air Canada Jazz operate more non-stop flights within
Canada and to the United States than any other airline. Within Canada, the
carriers operate more than 955 non-stop flights per day on 135 routes to and
from 59 Canadian airports. Between Canada and the United States, the carriers operate more than 385 non-stop flights per day on 79 routes to and from 50 U.S. and 6 Canadian destinations. In 2005, an independent survey of more than 12 million international air travellers ranked Air Canada as the Best
Airline in North America.

"Air Canada Jazz, to re-instate flights previously cancelled due to the lack of demand caused by inadequate access to the airport under the existing ferry service,"

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

That AC press release was posted 3 days ago on the original Regco thread - which is still active. It seems unnecessary to start another thread about it. Particularly as it posted by the same person in both threads - AirCanada014, who started this thread

I see on ACs web-site that a Dash 8-100 operates into Toronto City from Ottawa and arrives in the morning and then the return flight to Ottawa leaves in the late afternoon. Is the Dash-8 parked at Toronto City all day? If so where abouts is it parked?
