Virgin America has announced that it will serve Toronto Pearson International Airport with daily flights from California’s West Coast starting on 23 June.
The new service will begin with daily flights from both San Francisco (SFO) and Los Angeles (LAX) to Toronto (YYZ). The airline spread news of its expansion to Toronto via Twitter – without the support of traditional advertising.
“Toronto is one of the largest cities in North America and a world-class travel destination – with strong ties to California – most notably in the entertainment and high-tech sectors,” remarked Virgin America president and CEO David Cush. “Our unique inflight experience will be a perfect match for the diverse, tech-savvy flyers along the routes and we can’t wait to start welcoming them.”
Toronto will be the first international destination in Virgin America’s network. The schedule includes one nonstop daily flight and one daily through flight for each of the four sectors: SFO–YYZ; YYZ–SFO; LAX–YYZ and YYZ–LAX.
