If you’ve ever flown out of Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport you know how lovely the experience is. From the smooth check-in process, the short lines, and the beautiful city view, Toronto’s Billy Bishop is my favourite airport to fly out from. As of June 1st, flying out of Billy Bishop has gotten even sweet for Air Canada customers as the new Air Canada Café is now open.
About Air Canada Café
In collaboration with Aspire, Swissport’s premium lounge brand, Air Canada Café is officially open at Billy Bishop Airport exclusively for Air Canada customers. As the only lounge at Billy Bishop, Air Canada customers get their own private lounge to enjoy elevated comfort and relaxation before their flight. Talk about an incentive to book with Air Canada! Not only do you get to fly out of a great airport but now you can relax in the dedicated lounge before your flight!
“We know how much Air Canada customers, who travel frequently within the busy Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal corridor, really value the convenience of flying out of Billy Bishop,” said Jacqueline Harkness, Managing Director, Product & Services, Air Canada. “Our new Aspire | Air Canada Café at Billy Bishop builds upon the success of our first Air Canada Café at Toronto-Pearson, and is just one more way Air Canada continues to invest in the best lounge network in Canada.”
The new lounge is Air Canada’s 27th addition to its growing lounge network and the 6th Canadian location for Aspire. The 133-seat modern lounge has space for those travelling for work or leisure. With quiet workspaces, a private meeting room and premium drink and food options are among the amenities in the executive lounge. I think it may be time to book a flight!
