AIR ONTARIO TO FLY NONSTOP TO BWI

 AIR ONTARIO TO FLY NONSTOP TO BWI
 BWI AIRPORT, Md., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The Maryland Department of


Transportation today announced that Air Ontario will inaugurate service from Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI) to Toronto, beginning Monday, July 6.
 This new air service, which will operate seven days a week, gives BWI the distinction of being the only airport in the Baltimore/ Washington region to offer nonstop service to three major Canadian cities.
 "Air Ontario's service provides another important link between the Baltimore-Washington region and Canada, which is the largest trading partner for the U.S.," said Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) Secretary O. James Lighthizer. "The Maryland business community has long sought a direct BWI-Toronto link," he said.
 Gov. William Donald Schaefer said he was pleased with the announcement. "Air Ontario joins the growing list of international carriers at BWI. I'm pleased that the citizens of Maryland can now fly from BWI to the largest city in Canada." The governor praised U.S. Sen. Paul Sarbanes (D-Md.) and the Maryland Congressional Delegation for their strong support for the new route.
 "This service is vital to our region's travelling and business public, who look to BWI for convenient air service," said Sarbanes. "It also complements the State of Maryland's ongoing economic development and tourism initiatives."
 Air Ontario, an Air Canada Connector, is the only carrier to offer nonstop service between Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport and BWI. The air carrier will operate state-of-the-art Dash 8 aircraft on the route. Air Ontario's schedule will initially consist of three roundtrips during the week and two roundtrip flights a day on weekends.
 "Today's announcement culminates 10 years of hard work," said Maryland Aviation Administrator Ted Mathison. "Air Ontario becomes the 12th international carrier to offer scheduled or charter service out of BWI. International passenger traffic has grown 77 percent in two years, and we're up another 29 percent in the first quarter of 1992," he added.
 Canadian passengers will pre-clear U.S. Customs in Toronto. U.S. passengers travelling to Toronto will have the opportunity to utilize Air Canada's connections to other Canadian destinations.
 Air Ontario is one of five Air Canada Connector carriers and serves 17 destinations in the United States and Canada.
