Air Canada is to launch daily, year-round flights between Sydney, Nova Scotia and Toronto beginning 18 December 2013.

The route will offer Sydney customers one-stop connections to Air Canada's extensive Canadian, U.S. and international network through Air Canada's Toronto Pearson hub.

Marcel Forget, Vice President Network Planning at Air Canada, said, "Air Canada has been serving Sydney and Cape Breton for 71 years and we are pleased to further expand our services in response to local demand by linking the community directly with our Toronto hub to bring the world within one stop on a daily basis, year-round. This service caters to the business community, the tourism market and those visiting friends and relatives. Air Canada will be the only airline offering daily, year-round service between Toronto and Sydney, making it more  convenient to fly to Toronto-and-back from Sydney for a one-day meeting or travel beyond to destinations in the rest of Canada, the U.S., the Caribbean, Latin America and Asia."

Helen MacInnis, Chief Executive Officer of the Sydney Airport, added, "Air Canada's decision to operate year-round between JA Douglas McCurdy Sydney Airport and Toronto is very welcome news for the entire Cape Breton community. A daily flight to Toronto will not only make it easier for people to travel for business and leisure, but also provide an economic boost for tourism and businesses in the community. We appreciate that Air Canada has been responsive to our needs and now it is up to residents of the region to use this service in order to ensure it succeeds and is sustainable."

Air Canada's year-round, daily service between Sydney and Toronto will be operated by Jazz Aviation LP under the Air Canada Express brand using a 50-seat CRJ regional jet.
