Beginning September 15, Greater Toronto Airways will be offering daily, short flights from Toronto to Niagara, Collingwood, and Muskoka.
A one way trip will cost you around $85 with a round trip totaling $159. The Toronto Star tells us that flights for Niagara will leave from Toronto’s Billy Bishop Airport twice a day (7:15 a.m. and 4:40 p.m.) and arrive at Niagara District Airport by Niagara-on-the-Lake.
The drive to the falls tends to be at least an hour and half drive from the city — more with traffic, while Via Rail can get you there in about 90 minutes at a $39 rate, the small 8-seat planes from Greater Toronto Airways will be the fastest mode of transport to our beloved falls, no passport required.
The airline is also planning to offer flights from the city into Collingwood, Muskoka and even Montreal in the near future. The Niagara drive never feels too daunting, but those flights to the near North would be very welcomed — anything to avoid the 400 a long weekend rush.
