Arkefly to serve Toronto
Their first destination in the North Americas

Posted 12/01/2010

TUI Travel Group Dutch-based leisure carrier Arkefly has revealed to Routes online that it will begin serving the North Americas for the first time.

A new charter service between Amsterdam Schipol Airport and Toronto Pearson (YYZ) is proposed, using a B767-300ER, in a 3-class configuration (Economy, Comfort- and Star Class), with a total capacity of 272 seats.

Arkefly operates 6 aircraft at AMS: three B767-300s and three B737-300s.

Currently, Skyteam carrier KLM operates a ten-times weekly service between the city pairs, with Air Transat operating a seasonal charter service.

IATA BSP data (Airport IS) shows that over 120,000 passengers flew the route in the period between Oct 08-09.

Terrible airline!!
For only 20 CAD more then Arkefly, I fly this summer with Air Canada and Star Alliance partner Lufthansa from Brussels via Munich to YYZ and back via YUL to Brussels!
Seems to me a better choice then Arkefly!!

Hey yyzhyd,

I was just wondering how cargo is shipped between two cities ( for example, like toronto and dubai?). Does the aircraft carry the cargo, or is it something else?

Thanks

I have never been to Canada but subconsciously I thought EA has always had flights to Toronto, but I guess not. This is definitely a good news
Toronto to my understanding has a lot of immigrants from African nations including ours, so using the extensive network they got in East-Africa and Europe, this will help them become the Airline of choice by many wishing to travel to Africa.

Air Canada Adding 7 New U.S. Cities from YYZ

today's press release......

News Releases
Air Canada expands service to seven more American cities; pursues growth strategy for Toronto hub

New flights fortify airline's position as the leading transborder carrier

MONTREAL, Jan. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada today announced new services for seven more American cities, fortifying its Toronto hub and strengthening its position as the leading transborder carrier with the most daily flights between Canada and the U.S. of any airline.

"This additional service to seven more U.S. cities further solidifies Air
Canada's position as the leading transborder carrier between Canada and the
U.S. and the Number One foreign carrier flying to the United States --
offering the most flights per day to more destinations in the U.S. than any
other international airline," said Ben Smith, Executive Vice President and
Chief Commercial Officer. "It also demonstrates our commitment to drive
Toronto's growth as a hub. Air Canada is already the leading carrier at
Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport. Centralized in a single
terminal, Air Canada's Toronto hub is the most convenient gateway to and from
the U.S., offering multiple connection options for passengers travelling
anywhere in our global network. Our strategy is to leverage our hub to make
it a global transfer point for domestic, transborder and international
travellers."
This spring, Air Canada will offer new daily service between Toronto and
seven more American cities including: Orange County (Santa Ana) and San
Diego, California; Portland, Oregon; Memphis, Tennessee; Cincinnati, Ohio;
Portland, Maine; and Syracuse, New York. Flights will be non-stop and
conveniently timed for connections with flights on Air Canada's extensive
domestic and international network. Customers can earn and redeem Aeroplan
miles on each route.
Air Canada is also adding four new international destinations from
Toronto this summer. The airline has announced it will begin flying to
Athens, Barcelona, and Copenhagen, and offer same-plane, direct service to
Brussels through Montreal.
"Today's route announcement is great news for passengers flying between
Canada and the US," according to Pamela Griffith-Jones, Vice President, Chief
Marketing and Commercial Officer for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority
(GTAA). "We have worked with our airline customers' needs in mind to create
opportunities for route expansion. We are very pleased with Air Canada's
continued commitment to using Pearson as a connection point with the US, and
as a gateway to connect passengers to destinations around the world."

The seven new U.S. transborder routes are:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Destination Launching Frequency Service Provided By
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Orange County, Calif April 6, Daily, Air Canada A319
2010 year round

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

With the launch of these seven routes, Air Canada, along with Air Canada
Jazz and its Tier Three partners, offers up to 142 scheduled flights each day
to 51 U.S. destinations from its hub in Toronto. In total, this summer Air
Canada will operate up to 232 flights per day between six points in Canada
and 55 destinations in the U.S. In addition, this summer Air Canada will also
serve 30 domestic and 45 international destinations from Toronto.

Montréal-based Air Canada provides scheduled and charter air
transportation for passengers and cargo to more than 170 destinations on five
continents. Canada's flag carrier is the 13th largest commercial airline in
the world and serves 33 million customers annually. Air Canada is a founding
member of Star Alliance, providing the world's most comprehensive air
transportation network for Canadian domestic, transborder and international
travel. As well, customers can collect Aeroplan miles for future rewards
through Canada's leading loyalty program.

Their jet that crashed was the former Flyglobespan one. That was one hell of a missmanaged airline. I think they got really unlucky on that airplane crash. I doubt that airline took good care of their jets knowing it would go under.

ET to fly to Toronto
January 23rd, 2010
By: Emebet Mengistu ([email protected]) | External Link
The Ethiopian airlines and Canadian Air Service have reached an agreement that would enable the former to fly thrice a week to Toronto, Canada early in January.

A delegation led by the Civil Aviation Authority Director General Col. Wosenyeleh Hunegnaw and Chief Air Negotiator with the Canadian Foreign Ministry Robert Ready have reached agreement after holding discussion on the issue from 4-6 Jan 2010.

The commencement of the flight will significantly contribute to enhance trade, investment and tourism relations between the two countries.

The agreement will respond the request of Ethiopian diaspora in Canada for years, the ministry said.

According to a Brazilian aviation thread - TAP Portugal had serious considerations of coming back to Toronto immediately before the economic crisis. I guess now this is delayed for a few years, but it would be great to see them back at YYZ!

Inspired by the Amsterdam thread which I'm a huge fan of.. Here's a few of my favourite pictures from flickr.

The other Pearson thread is for news while this one will be mainly for photographs. I'm sure we have some hidden spotters in our midsts.
