Virgin America has announced plans to serve Toronto’s Pearson International Airport with daily nonstop flights from Los Angeles and San Francisco as early as June.
To that end, the airline has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation seeking authority to fly from the U.S. to Canada.
If approved, this would become the airline’s first international destination.
As set forth in its application, Virgin plans to begin service as early as June on the following routes: L.A. to Toronto (one nonstop daily flight and one daily through-flight) and San Francisco (one nonstop daily flight and one daily through flight).
Both are key destinations for meeting and incentive travel planners.
This is part of a 2010 growth strategy that will also see the fledgling airline add six additional aircraft to its fleet this year.
