ERLANGER, Ky. — Air Canada will resume nonstop service between Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and Toronto Pearson (YYZ) on May 1, after being suspended for nearly two years because of the pandemic. The twice-daily flights are now available to book at aircanada.com.
Flights depart CVG daily at 6:10 a.m. and 4:40 p.m., and arrive at YYZ at 7:42 a.m. and 6:12 p.m.
“With overall travel demand accelerating, our flights linking Cincinnati and Toronto will be of interest to customers looking to visit friends and family and explore Canada’s largest city. The route will reconnect two well-established business markets and Air Canada’s flights are scheduled to connect easily to a myriad of flights across Canada and Europe through our Toronto Pearson hub. We look forward to welcoming you on board,” said Mark Galardo, senior vice president, network planning and revenue management at Air Canada.
“CVG, along with our tourism partners at the Cincinnati USA Convention and Visitors Bureau and meetNKY, are thrilled that Air Canada has confirmed it is resuming its nonstop service between the Cincinnati Region and Toronto,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. “This news should encourage our regional business community, particularly, as corporate and international travel demand continue to recover coming out of the pandemic.”
CVG Airport has been serving passengers since 1947. The airport welcomed more than 9.1 million passengers in 2019, serving a record number of local passengers. As the airport recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, it still offers the most nonstop destinations and the lowest average airfares in the region.

It is the 7th-largest cargo airport in North America – home to Amazon Air’s primary U.S. Hub and DHL Express Global Superhub.
