A new airline will offer service between Waterloo, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto.
On Tuesday, Pivot Airlines said they have reached an agreement with the Region of Waterloo International Airport to provide the service once it has regulatory approval.

Flights will be operated with Canadian-made CRJ Jets and De Havilland Dash 8 Regional Turboprops.
And tickets will cost anywhere from $90 to $250.
“The regional airline model in Canada is changing, and we are ideally positioned to play a critical role. We believe as people return to travel, modern regional airports will play a larger role than what we have seen in the past,” the release states.
“The facilities, infrastructure and capabilities of YKF are genuinely world-class; travellers will enjoy the efficiencies and comfort that come with using the airport when compared to using a crowded hub airport.”
According to Pivot, their agreement with the Region of Waterloo allows them to build maintenance, operations and office facilities at the airport, which will enable them to serve the local community by creating more jobs.
In the coming weeks, Pivot says they will announce additional partnerships and more service-related details.
