Air Canada trials new service to connect regional airports

Air Canada’s new motorcoach service will connect the Hamilton and the Region of Waterloo airports to Toronto Pearson. Customers can now create a single itinerary when booking travel with Air Canada from Waterloo Region or Hamilton through Toronto to any destination. 

The service includes a motorcoach service, provided by Landline, connecting with Air Canada flights. This integrated service is a trial initiative with the potential to make it available elsewhere in Canada in the future.

Landline will operate six, non-stop round trips daily to Toronto Pearson from each of the Hamilton and Region of Waterloo airports in southern Ontario. Air Canada customers beginning their journey at Hamilton or Region of Waterloo airports will check in as normal for their flight and obtain boarding passes for all segments of their trip. 

At a designated departure point at the local airport, they will board an Air Canada-branded motorcoach and their checked baggage will be loaded. Upon arrival at Toronto Pearson, customers will proceed directly with their bags to the departure level.

In the event of coach or flight delays, customers travelling on Landline will be automatically rebooked like customers travelling on air-only itineraries.  Members of Air Canada’s Aeroplan program will earn points for both ground and air segments, as on any normal connecting flight itinerary.
