These trips will increase to up to eight return trips daily between Toronto Island and Ottawa starting in summer 2022.

“This new route is designed to meet customer demand in this heavily travelled market, with a large business travel component, and complement our recently resumed Montreal-Toronto Island airport service,” Air Canada said in a news release Thursday.

The company says it’s currently operating five return trips daily between Toronto Island and Montreal.
