    Memphis International Airport welcomes 2nd Air Canada Memphis-Toronto frequency
    Thursday, December 21, 2017

    MEMPHIS, TENN. (December 21, 2017) – Memphis International Airport (MEM) today welcomed Air Canada’s decision to add a second frequency to its non-stop service between Memphis and Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). The additional service will begin on May 1 on the one-year anniversary of Air Canada’s return to MEM.  

    “Air Canada’s Memphis-Toronto service has been extremely well-received by our passengers,” said Pace Cooper, Chairman of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority board of commissioners. “This second frequency boldly shows that Air Canada is responding to the strong demand of the Memphis market, and more importantly, it opens up Toronto as a gateway city through which Memphis passengers will be able to achieve very convenient one-stop service to Asia, Europe and the Middle East.” 

    Air Canada is strengthening the connection between Memphis and Toronto, expanding a service that offers not only a non-stop connection between the cities but also a one-stop gateway to more than 160 Canadian and other international destinations Air Canada serves through its worldwide network. The new flight will be a 6 a.m. departure that arrives in Toronto at 9:25 a.m., making it ideal for passengers who are connecting to Asia.

    “There has been a strong response from Memphis and the surrounding community to Air Canada’s service and consequently we are pleased to expand it by adding a second flight. Apart from visiting Canada many customers are connecting onward through our Toronto global hub and the timing of this second flight starting this spring will make it even more convenient for people flying from Memphis to connect onward to our extensive Asian network,” said Lisa Pierce, Sr. Director, U.S. Sales and Market Development at Air Canada. 

    The airline uses a 50-seat Bombardier CRJ200 for its Memphis-Toronto route. Updated schedule starting May 1:
