Windsor, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) October 01, 2015
National Airlines is pleased to announce non-stop service between Windsor, Ontario, (airport code YQG), and Orlando, Florida, (airport code SFB). The inaugural flight, on Thursday, December 17, 2015, will depart Windsor International Airport at 2:30 PM EST and arrive Orlando Sanford International Airport at 5:00 PM EST. National Airlines will fly this route year ‘round. National will offer return flights from Orlando Sanford International Airport also on Thursdays and Sundays, departing at 10:30 AM EST and arriving in Windsor at 1:00 PM EST. Reservations can be made at nationalairlines.com or by calling 855-757-6999.
After investigating numerous options, National Airlines chose Orlando Sanford International Airport because of its exceptional service, proximity to local attractions, and the relatively smaller crowds and shorter lines that will minimize time in the airport, leaving our guests more time to enjoy all that Florida has to offer. Orlando Sanford International’s service aligns well with National Airlines’ Customer- Focused Service, with the preeminent goal of providing a safe and pleasant travel experience for all of our passengers.
“National’s non-stop service to Orlando Sanford International Airport will offer competitively priced flights to Central Florida’s theme parks, beaches and cruises,” said Edward Davidson, President and Chief Operating Officer at National Airlines. Davidson continued “Windsor was selected for similar reasons – it is an ideal gateway serving southwestern Ontario and the airport is easy and fast to navigate.”
“We are delighted with National Airlines’ announcement of fast, direct flights from YQG to Orlando Sanford International Airport,” said 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.”
Special, introductory rate fares will be available from October 1, 2015 through October 15, 2015, 11:59 PM EDT. These rates are good for travel between December 17, 2015 and May 31, 2016.

Based on customer recommendations that National should extend its customer-focused product to the traveling public in the form of scheduled service, National is proud to have selected Windsor, Vancouver, St. John’s, Las Vegas and San Juan to be included in our initial schedule offerings. National Airlines service is unlike today's normal “cattle-car approach” and instead focuses on delivering exceptional value and price in a comfortable and professional manner. “We think travelers will agree. Just give us the opportunity to introduce you to our ‘Inclusive Fares, Exclusive Service,’ approach to air travel,” said Dennis Daley, National’s Manager of Network Planning and Strategy.
National Airlines will also offer non-stop flights from Vancouver, British Columbia, (airport code YVR) and St. John’s, Newfoundland, (airport code YYT), to Orlando Sanford International Airport. Flights from these areas will take off mid-January 2016. Additionally, National will offer non-stops to Las Vegas, (airport code LAS), on December 27, 2015 and San Juan, Puerto Rico, (airport code SJU), on December 16, 2015.
“We are delighted to welcome a new carrier to YVR which will boost tourism and provide greater selection for travelers when headed to sunny Florida,” said Craig Richmond, President and CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. “This new service increases YVR’s overall capacity to Orlando and provides a direct link to the city’s second airport.”
