Beginning Monday, Jan. 31, 2022, area residents and visitors can again fly Kingston to Toronto with Toronto-based airline FLYGTA.

According to a release from the City of Kingston, FLYGTA service is available to book online at with dates serving weekdays and weekends. The City entered into its agreement with FlyGTA in the fall of 2020 after Air Canada cancelled its regional flight service at airports across Canada.

“We are thrilled to be landing at Kingston Airport once again and look forward to expanding our service in the coming months,” said Chris Nowrouzi, CEO of FLYGTA Group. 

YGK Airport first welcomed FLYGTA flights in 2020, as part of a short-term campaign to support the local tourism industry and safe regional travel during the pandemic, according to the release. The City said that FLYGTA has an excellent safety record and diligently adheres to all federal and provincial COVID-19 safety protocols. 

“We were impressed by both the airport facility and the team. But ultimately, our decision to return to Kingston Airport was based on market demand. We see the need for air travel from Kingston to Toronto, and we are proud to provide that service,” added Nowrouzi. 

According to the City, airport manager Aron Winterstein is pleased to see the return of passenger air travel. “Kingston Airport is open for business,” he said, noting that the airport has been working very hard to return service to the community and hopes this will be the first of many good news stories coming from the airport.
