Air Canada is soaring into a new partnership with The Landline Company. The pair will offer multimodal connections from Hamilton and Waterloo Region airports to its Toronto Pearson global hub.

This exciting initiative launches as a pilot project in May 2024. It combines luxury motorcoach service with Air Canada flights for a stress-free, convenient, and sustainable travel experience.

Multimodal Travel

Book a single itinerary that effortlessly blends a comfortable Landline motorcoach ride with your Air Canada flight.

This means that travellers can leave the regional airport, checking in once, and enjoying the peace of mind of knowing your baggage is automatically transferred throughout your journey.

The motorcoaches used by Landline for Air Canada are made in Canada by Prevost, a manufacturer of touring coaches based in Sainte-Claire, Quebec.

Each luxury coach features just 36 spacious, leather seats in a two-by-one configuration, ensuring ample personal space.

Enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, power outlets, tray tables, and generous overhead storage for your carry-on.

 You can even unwind knowing announcements are made in both French and English, and the coaches are fully accessible for travelers with mobility needs.

Expanding Horizons

Air Canada’s network expands by directly linking local airports to its global hub.

This opens up a world of possibilities, allowing travelers from Hamilton and Waterloo Region to easily access exciting new destinations, both within Canada and internationally.

This partnership also embraces sustainability. By removing potentially tens of thousands of vehicles from the road annually, Air Canada and Landline are taking a positive step towards a greener future.

 “We are excited to partner with Air Canada and The Landline Company to deliver this innovative, convenient, hassle-free travel option to passengers travelling from Hamilton International Airport,” said Cole Horncastle, Executive Managing Director of John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport.

“This innovative service by Air Canada and Landline opens up a world of opportunities, allowing our Waterloo Region community to easily access a wider array of destinations and meaningful experiences both within Canada and internationally,” said Karen Redman, Chair of the Region of Waterloo.

 We look forward to welcoming both new and returning travelers to YKF through this exciting partnership.”
