PROVIDENCE – Air Canada is suspending its twice daily service from T.F. Green Airport to Toronto effective March 1, R.I. Airport Corporation Interim President and CEO Peter Frazier told Providence Business News.

Air Canada, which offered the only scheduled international flights out of T.F. Green, had two flights a day to Toronto on an 18-seat Beechcraft 1900.

“We will try our darndest to backfill. But you have to really compare the services that are being offered out of Logan,” said Frazier, who added that the greater schedule out of Boston’s Logan International Airport offers passengers fare competition and larger aircraft.

Frazier added that RIAC plans to look into the airlines that are presently providing Logan to Toronto services to see if they might be a good fit to fill the hole left by the Canadian airline.

“Air Canada has been a longstanding great partner with the R.I. Airport Corporation and we look forward to market conditions improving where we might be able to renew the relationship,” said Frazier.

Air Canada started providing Toronto service from T.F. Green in October 1997.
