Air Canada will resume its service between Toronto and Trinidad, eight years after it discontinued the service.
It will recommence service on November 1, 2023, with three flights per week arriving in Trinidad at 11:25 pm, on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and departing at 12:30 am Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
From December 3, 2023, to March 9, 2024, service will be expanded to four flights per week, arriving at 12:25 am, Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and departing at 1:30 am, Tuesday, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Carla Cupid, Chief Executive Officer of Tourism Trinidad, said: “We welcome back Air Canada to our destination. This is a positive development for our tourism industry, and we look forward to using this connection to continue to promote Trinidad as a top travel destination.”
Trinidad and Tobago’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and the Arts, Senator Randall Mitchell, also expressed his enthusiasm about the news.
“We continue to work with our international partners and stakeholders in the Air Transportation industry to increase our connectivity and seat capacity from our traditional source markets while at the same time, reducing the cost of travel to Trinidad and Tobago,” he said.
“This marries well with the recent announcement by the Canadian government of Visa-free travel to Canada to the diaspora located there,” he added.
