Biz crowd flying high over air service
From the St Catharines Standard:
Bookings have begun rolling in for upcoming flights connecting Niagara and Toronto — and it comes as no surprise to Mishka Balsom.
The president and CEO of Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce believes the air service offered by Greater Toronto Airways announced Tuesday will be a “great benefit” to the local business community.
Flights, which officially take off Sept. 15, will depart Niagara District Airport in Niagara-on-the-Lake each weekday at 8:30 a.m. and land at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, also known as Toronto Island airport, less than 15 minutes later. Return flights will leave Toronto at 4:30 p.m.
The service — on a plane with six-to-eight seats — can also be used for day trips to Niagara, departing Toronto at 7:15 a.m. and returning at 6 p.m.
