Air Canada announces flights to St John's
The seasonal service will be the only daily, non-stop link between London Heathrow and the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
It will operate from May 27th to September 26th and is expected to provide a big benefit for local tourism and business sectors.
Keith Collins, president of the St John's International Airport Authority, said: "We're very encouraged by Air Canada's confidence in the St John's market and their decision to offer a daily direct flight between St John's and London Heathrow.
"Our community has strongly expressed their need and their desire for Air Canada to reestablish this important link to Europe and we're delighted that they've decided to begin the service at a time when travel between St John's and Europe is anticipated to increase."
