Landline, premium airport shuttle service, this week announced its first international operations in launching a new partnership with Air Canada.

The initial phase of the partnership enables Air Canada customers to book direct connections on Landline luxury motorcoaches from Hamilton International Airport (YHM) and Region of Waterloo International Airport (YKF) to 140+ worldwide destinations via Air Canada’s Toronto Pearson hub.

Landline will operate six, non-stop round trips daily to Toronto Pearson from each of the Hamilton (YHM) and Region of Waterloo (YKF) airports in southern Ontario.

At a designated departure point at the local airport, they will board a luxury, Air Canada-branded motorcoach and their checked baggage will be loaded.

Upon arrival at Toronto Pearson, customers will proceed directly through security screening, while checked bags will be automatically transferred to the onward connecting flight.

Ben Munson, President and cofounder of Landline said: “We are proud to partner with Air Canada to provide seamless connections to their world class Toronto gateway.

“Welcoming Air Canada as a platform partner is a major step for Landline on its path to creating a new category of travel and is representative of the demand for our product in the airline industry.”

Alexandre Lefevre, Vice President Network Planning, North America, and Scheduling, at Air Canada said: “Serving regional communities and building connectivity is a priority for Air Canada.

“Multi-modal transport is an effective means to do so and we are pleased to partner with The Landline Company, which has deep experience and a record of reliable operational performance.

“Customers using Landline’s premium motorcoach service will benefit through connections to our global network and be able to do so in a comfortable, convenient way that is also environmentally friendly,” .

David Sunde, Landline’s CEO, and cofounder said: “In addition to creating a more seamless travel day for the customer, Landline’s platform reduces congestion in airports and on the road, providing real, tangible environmental benefits today.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with Canada’s flag carrier and premier global airline.”
