Air Canada adjusts May flights, Newark flight begins – The Royal Gazette
Updated: April 30, 2022 07:44
Highlights of the May flight schedule revealed yesterday by Skyport, operators of LF Wade International Airport, include the return of Air Canada flights to Bermuda – and a United Airlines connection to Newark, New Jersey.
Air Canada’s service to Toronto will serve Bermuda three times a week beginning May 1.
Flights on Air Canada’s new schedule will depart Bermuda at 8:10 p.m. and land in Canada at 9:15 p.m. on Sundays, Thursdays and Fridays.
The carrier adjusted its service to Bermuda after an online petition highlighted issues with the scheduled 11:15 p.m. arrival in Toronto in May and 11:35 p.m. in June.
Travelers protested that Air Canada’s late landing meant connecting flights were likely to be missed, forcing them to spend the night in Toronto.
The new Skyport timetable also offers a daily service from Newark to the island via United from Friday May 6.
WestJet’s Toronto service will not be offered, and JetBlue from New York JFK arrives in Bermuda an hour earlier.
Slight changes to American Airlines service to and from Miami are planned, a Skyport spokeswoman said.
Bermuda’s full May flight schedule is available online here.
