Virgin America All Set to Fly to Canada

virgin_americaVirgin America is all set to land into the Canadian Aviation market. Moreover, the low-cost airliner has revealed that it plans to do that by this June.

The airliner, while giving information about its plan yesterday, said, “Virgin America intends to add Canada as its first international destination as early as June with one daily non-stop flight and one connecting flight between Toronto and Los Angeles and its base in San Francisco”.

The move, when it comes to fruition, will see Virgin's subsidiary, for the first time, go against Air Canada.

Virgin believes that after being certified as a U. S. carrier, it can now file a request with the U. S. Department of Transportation seeking permission to fly internationally. If their application is approved, it will hit the airspace by June this year, the statement released by Virgin says.

David Cush, Chief Executive of Virgin America, says, “With strong financial performance, a new ownership structure and growth in fleet size, we're pleased to be able to expand to world-class destinations like Orlando and Toronto this year”.

“Both cities are major travel destinations from the West Coast, and we're looking forward to introducing our service to travelers in these and other new markets in 2010 and beyond”, he said.
