Air Canada Launches Multimodal Partnership with The Landline Company

Air Canada has announced a new multimodal partnership The Landline Company, which will offer passengers in the Hamilton and Kitchener/Waterloo regions seamless access to Air Canada flights at Toronto Pearson (YYZ).

Through the pilot project, Air Canada passengers can enjoy ground transportation to and from Toronto Pearson (YYZ) on a Canadian-built motorcoach operated by The Landline Company, connecting to or from an Air Canada flight on a single itinerary.

Air Canada has launched a multimodal pilot project with The Landline Company, which will provide motorcoach service to passengers between John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (YHM) and the Region of Waterloo International Airport (YKF) to Toronto Pearson (YYZ)

The Canadian-built motorcoaches offer passengers fully accessible transportation with reclining leather seats, tray tables, power outlets, and complimentary Wi-Fi for the journey. Each motorcoach has 36 seats in a 2-1 configuration, as well as overhead bins for carry-on bags and an onboard lavatory.

Through the partnership, passengers are able to book a single itinerary that combines the motorcoach transfer with a departing or arriving Air Canada flight at its hub at Toronto Pearson (YYZ). 

Landline will operate six, non-stop round-trip  journeys daily from each of Hamilton (YHM) and Kitchener/Waterloo (YKF) airports. 

Passengers departing from Hamilton or Kitchener/Waterloo will check in as per usual for their flight, and obtain boarding passes for all trip segments. 

Then, they’ll board an Air Canada-branded motorcoach, and their checked baggage will be loaded on their behalf. Upon arrival at Toronto Pearson (YYZ), passengers will proceed directly to security, and their baggage will be transferred onward to their connecting flight.

For passengers arriving at Toronto Pearson (YYZ) and connecting to a motorcoach back to Hamilton or Kitchener/Waterloo, you’ll need to collect your baggage upon arrival and bring it to the designated Landline pickup location on the ground level of the airport for your connection.

Passengers will enjoy full itinerary protection in the event of any delays on the motorcoach service or with flights.

Plus, passengers will earn Aeroplan points on both the ground and air segments.
