Bermuda’s premier boutique airline, BermudAir, has announced a significant expansion into Canada, offering direct flights to Toronto, Ontario, and Halifax, Nova Scotia.

This latest North American development marks a major milestone for the airline’s growth trajectory.

Traveler Demand and Cultural Exchange

The new routes, launching in May 2024, address the growing demand for convenient travel options between Bermuda and these key Canadian cities.

BermudAir is committed to enhancing connectivity for both leisure and business travelers.

Toronto, Canada’s bustling economic hub, enjoys strong ties with Bermuda. Halifax, rich in history and a strategic Atlantic gateway, shares historical, cultural, and commercial connections with the island.

These new routes promise to become vital links, fostering increased tourism and business exchange between the two countries.

 Travelers can now easily experience the distinct charm of Bermuda, from its iconic pink sand beaches to its vibrant coral reefs, while Canadians can explore the rich heritage and natural beauty of Nova Scotia or the dynamic energy of Toronto.
