Summer travellers wishing to see Canada will have several options from Hamilton Airport this Summer. In addition to the seasonal service WestJet offers to Atlantic Canada, WestJet announced that it has introduced flights between Edmonton and Hamilton, with service beginning July 28. This in addition to WestJet’s year-round non-stop service to Calgary.
Air Canada is still offering flights direct between Hamilton and Montreal which began in May. The flights leave each airport twice daily except Saturday, which has one flight each way. The airline says it timed the flights so passengers could connect with flights to Atlantic Canada and Europe.
