Air Canada Is Back at MKE Airport

Expect more nonstop flights to Canada this summer.

Air Canada announced on Thursday plans to resume daily nonstop service between Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport and Toronto beginning July 1.

The route had been suspended since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re happy to welcome Air Canada back to Milwaukee with nonstop service to Toronto, giving local travelers another reason to choose our hometown airport,” airport director Brian Dranzik said. “Flying Air Canada to Toronto also provides another convenient connection point for flights to Europe, Asia, South America and beyond.”

The service gives Milwaukee travelers a nonstop option to experience Toronto, Niagara Falls and other parts of Ontario.

The route is also expected to serve travelers booked on upcoming Great Lakes cruises, including on the new Viking Octantis, which will travel between Toronto and Milwaukee beginning this spring.

The flights to and from Mitchell and Toronto Pearson International Airport will operate seven days per week on a CRJ-200 aircraft.

Air Canada had suspended 41 routes in 11 cities across North America when the pandemic began.
