Hamilton International Airport Adds CanJet Flights

Hamilton International Airport has bolstered its winter schedule with a selection of new flights being marketed by tour operator Transat Tours and operated by CanJet.  The Canadian tour operator will be offering flights to Varadero and Holguin in Cuba, Cancun in Mexico and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.

“We are delighted to introduce the new flights and to welcome Transat Tours to Hamilton International,” said Karen Medweth, Director of Air Service Development and Marketing, Hamilton International Airport.  “The addition of another operator offering winter schedules from Hamilton International demonstrates the airports pledge to develop a route network that best serves the extensive catchment area in the region.”

The total number of destinations served by Hamilton International for this winter season now stands at six.  The new CanJet flights will operate between December 2011 and April 2012 and will see extra capacity being introduced to Cancun and Punta Cana, which are also being served during the same period by WestJet.  The low-cost carrier is also serving Orlando (launched in November) and will double frequencies to twice weekly on this route in February 2012, as well as domestic links to Calgary.
