No more sitting for hours on end in rush hour traffic on your way to Niagara Falls. At least, not when you could just take a plane. And while going through airport security is certainly a hassle, it might actually be worth it this time. Because the flight from Toronto to Niagara Falls is only 15 minutes long in total (that’s probably even faster than a pit stop you’d take when driving).
Greater Toronto Airways will be offering flights from Billy Bishop Airport in Toronto to Niagara District Airport in Saint Catherines for $85 each way. So starting September 15, you can start travelling between Toronto and the Niagra Region in style from an eight-seater plane.
“Our goal is to grow from just connecting Toronto and Niagara Falls, to then Toronto and Collingwood, and Niagara Falls and Collingwood. Muskoka after that. Then we want really to focus on the townships that have to drive through the traffic to get to Niagara district or to downtown Toronto,” said the CEO of Greater Toronto Airways, Chris Nowrouzi. Which means this is only really the beginning of short flights around Ontario.
Regional Municipality of Niagara’s Chair, Alan Caslin, said “Not only does it allow people to commute from Toronto to Niagara, from Niagara to Toronto, but also it offers a connector service. Because now you can get from Niagara to Billy Bishop Airport and on whatever destination you want to go to, whether it be through Pearson Airport or through Union Station or through Billy Bishop Airport with another airline.”
