National Airlines will begin non-stop service between Windsor and Orlando, Florida on December 17, 2015.
“We are delighted with National Airlines’ announcement of fast, direct flights from YQG (Windsor) to Orlando Sanford International Airport,” says Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Our research shows residents of southern Ontario fly to Florida more than to any other destination, and new non-stop flights allow YQG to provide better service to Florida than many larger Canadian airports. Most importantly, it means our residents no longer have to cross into Detroit to catch flights to Florida.” Flights will depart Windsor International Airport Thursdays and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. EST and arrive at Orlando Sanford International Airport at 5 p.m. EST. National will offer return flights from Orlando Sanford International Airport on Thursdays and Sundays, departing at 10:30 a.m. EST and arriving in Windsor at 1 p.m. EST. National Airlines will fly this route year round. For more information visit: YQG.ca OR NationalAirlines.com
