WestJet will be offering daily service between Greater Sudbury Airport and Toronto Pearson International Airport starting Feb. 3.
WestJet Encore, the Calgary-based air carrier’s regional service, will increase to three daily flights by next May.
"As Canada's low-fare leader, we are offering residents of Greater Sudbury the opportunity to fly more affordably and connect seamlessly into our expanding national and international network,” said WestJet’s commercial executive vice-president Bob Cummings in a statement.
“With as many as 115 daily departures available via Toronto Pearson – more than at any other airport in our network – these flights perfectly match the needs of both business and leisure travellers.”
Flights will depart Sudbury at 6 a.m. and arrive in Toronto at 7:01 a.m.
The return flights north depart Pearson at 10 p.m. The one-way ticket price is $123.31.
WestJet failed to make a go of it in Sudbury in 2001. The airline was using Boeing 737s but has since switched to smaller Bombardier Q400s for its Encore regional carrier.
