‘Ottawa’ Air Canada Drops Route From Ottawa to New York’s LaGuardia, Delta Adds Flights
Air Canada has stopped flying directly from Ottawa to LaGuardia Airport in New York City.
Air Canada said Tuesday that as of March 26 it will instead offer flights from Ottawa to Newark airport in New Jersey, which is about 25 kilometres from Manhattan.
“The service will operate three times a day, as did the Ottawa-LaGuardia service, with convenient early morning, afternoon and evening departures from Ottawa,” said Air Canada spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick in a statement.
“We will continue to serve LaGuardia from Montreal and Toronto, so Ottawa customers do have the option to connect through either city to still travel to LaGuardia if that is necessary.”
Meanwhile, Delta announced that as of April 2, it will offertwice daily flights from Ottawa to LaGuardia.
“We continually examine our global network and add flying where we see compelling opportunities to serve our customers,” said Delta’s Morgan Durrant.
Fitzpatrick said any Air Canada customers already booked on Ottawa-LaGuardia flights will be notified and switched to the Newark flights at no charge, or be given the option of a full refund.
