Combined with the extended reach of our more than 40 airline partners around the world, getting around just got a whole lot easier for northerners."

"This new partnership provides more choice for Sudburians, improves the tourism industry, brings more visitors to Greater Sudbury, creates jobs and spin off positions for our community and continues to reinforce our position as the hub of Northern Ontario."
