Canadian travellers will have more travel options for their Barbados holidays this summer as WestJet and Air Canada expand their summer services flying out of Toronto and Montreal airports running from June through to November 2010.

More Flight Choices for Canadian Travellers Taking Barbados Holidays This Summer

Air Canada and WestJet will be offering additional summer flights this summer for travellers looking to take holidays to Barbados departing from Toronto and Montréal airports.

Neville Boxill, an aviation consultant for the Barbados Tourism Authority has confirmed that the additional Air Canada flights will be operating from Montréal International Airport from June to November 2010 and the services will then return to the Winter 2010 schedule.
The Barbados Tourism Authority is hoping to pursue a partnership with Air Canada so that travellers will have all year round flight options for their Barbados holidays. Air Canada’s usual daily flights to Barbados will continue from Toronto during the summer season and the usual nine flights per week available during the winter months are expected to continue from November.

Additional flights from WestJet will also be available for tourists booking Caribbean holidays this summer with services scheduled on a five days a week rotation and the airline effectively providing an all year round service to the Caribbean.

The additional flights are adding more competition for the airlines which is lowering the price of airfares, and as a result the stimulated travel market is generating positive growth for both Air Canada and WestJet.

The number of tourists enjoying holidays in Barbados by the end of April 2010 had increased by 10.6 percent in comparison to the same period last year.

Air Canada and WestJet are both major network carriers in Canada and provide passengers with more flight options for their Barbados holidays from main cities across the North American country.

At the 2010 Skytrax World Airline Awards in Hamburg, Germany in May this year, Air Canada received the prestigious award for the “Best Airline North America” which will reassure customers of the high level of standards and service provided on their flights to their tropical Barbados holidays.
