That's awesome. Now if we could get Orlando. That would be great!!!

I saw a billboard add for Swoop on Victoria street Flying from London to various locations. When are people going to start recognizing that we are a bigger city now than London and Hamilton. We want our own destinations. Not going to London. Wasted advertising.

You just have to convince Swoop to put some planes here..... no idea why WestJet (and by default, their sister Swoop) refuse to add extra legs here.

Next winter as in 6-7 months from now? This is amazing news and will make our travels to Cozumel that much easier!

*edit: It is this winter, the Cancun flight appears to be leaving/returning on Wednesdays. Not ideal, but better than schlepping through Pearson.

I wonder why they're going Wednesdays, a weekend flight would seem to make far more sense.

The website doesn't show a flight number or flight time, i'm hoping it's just a placeholder!

But it probably isn't, so I won't get my hopes up.

I wonder if other airlines will offer flights from YKF this year.

I noticed that Jetlines no longer shows its proposed flight map and there is no mention of using Hamilton as a hub.  I suppose it's possible they are still looking at Kitchener.  Last year, Flair Airlines moved out of Hamilton as soon as they found out that Swoop (WestJet's low cost carrier) would operate out of Hamilton.  Flair had potential but they obviously can't compete with an airline that has deep pockets.  It would appear that Jetlines reached the same conclusion.  But they need a hub in Southern Ontario and I suspect that YKF's offer to guarantee routes for a couple of years is starting to look appealing.  One of the flights Flair offered from Hamilton was to Cancun.    Now that route is taken by Sunwing.  Jetlines is planning on a launch in time for winter travel so I wouldn't be surprised if they decide to fly out of YKF.  There are some drawbacks though.  Jetlines wants to serve the greater Toronto area but there is limited transportation to and from Toronto to Breslau.  There was talk of a GO station at Breslau and that would help.  Bus service to Toronto would also help.  Because Jetlines is a ULCC I can't see too many passengers taking a taxi to Toronto. Regardless, I hope YKF will offer more flights.
