HAMILTON, Bermuda, CMC - Air Canada has announced that it plans to scale back flights from Toronto to Bermuda to three days a week, starting in the spring, because of weaker demand.
“We reduced the schedule in response to the route performance and expected future demand,” an Air Canada representative told media here.
Canada’s largest airline is currently flying from Toronto to Bermuda five days a week but starting in May, it will fly only on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
However, the airline will add another flight on Tuesdays as of June 27 for the summer months and revert to three times a week in September.
The Royal Gazette newspaper reports that the cuts have disrupted the plans of many travellers, including an event organiser who had 62 people booked on a flight to come to the island to perform in early June.
Starting on February 23, Air Canada will also resume its Bermuda to Halifax, Nova Scotia flight once a week until March 16 as a winter seasonal service.
The Halifax service is popular with Bermudian students who attend university in Nova Scotia.
Another Canadian airline, WestJet, flies to Bermuda three times a week.
