First Transatlantic Service takes off to Canada
first ever scheduled transatlantic service took off on Bank Holiday
Monday as Flyglobespan launched a direct service to Toronto, Canada.
Passengers checking in for the first flight were entertained by a
Canadian Mountie and sampled traditional Canadian food of pecan
pastries with maple syrup. Mrs Jan Amos from Eastham, Wirral was the
first passenger to check-in and as a consequence received a bottle
of champagne. Jan was flying to Toronto to visit relatives and
friends in Port Colborn, near Niagara Falls.
Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, Toronto is Canada’s largest
City and home to the tallest building in the world, the CN Tower as
well as being a hotbed of culture and entertainment. Passengers can
now enjoy direct flights starting from only £99 including taxes.
Flyglobespan is now operating weekly flights to Toronto’s Hamilton
Airport which is conveniently positioned to serve downtown Toronto
and other popular destinations in the province of Ontario, with
Niagara Falls less than an hours drive away.
The weekly flight departs JLA at 1.30pm arriving in Toronto at
4.30pm. Return flights leave Toronto on Sunday evenings at 8.20pm
arriving in Liverpool at 8.25am the following day.
Neil Pakey, Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s Managing Director said:-
“This flight marks the beginning of a new era for John Lennon
Airport by being our first ever scheduled transatlantic service. As
well as giving passengers in the North West the opportunity to fly
to Canada at some great low fares, we hope that many Canadians will
take the opportunity to visit Liverpool and Merseyside, particularly
in the run up to 2008 and the City’s European Capital of Culture
Flyglobespan is already well known to Liverpool John Lennon
passengers having operated flights to Tenerife during the winter and
later this month the airline launches a daily service to New York
JFK – the first direct airlink between the two cities.
Chairman of flyglobespan, Tom Dalrymple said:- “This is an
exciting time for the airline and the airport. With our flights to
New York starting later this month, these are two highly attractive
long-haul destinations. The key factors of load factor and fuel
price are even more important on these longer routes, and therefore
the flyglobespan model that has worked so well on short-haul routes
fits well into the long-haul market, delivering low seat prices.”
As with all flyglobespan flights, passengers can book flight only or
chose to add on transfers and/or
accommodation. All flight, holiday, & city break details are
Letters To Editor:- "Pleasureland to be Demolished?"
"I have spotted
that since Blackpool Pleasure Beach has left the mess behind and
gutted the park, that demolition signs have suddenly popped up all
over the park.
Casablanca’s and Ricks Bar be demolished?
Sefton wanted to reopen it, or did Blackpool leave it in such a
state that Sefton has no option, but to demolish the structures on
the site and the large building, Casablanca’s?"
