SAN FRANCISCO — Virgin America is suspending service to Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) effective April 6, 2011.

The airline has decided to indefinitely suspend its YYZ service and instead immediately move capacity into other existing and more lucrative markets from the West Coast including Dallas Fort Worth. The carrier had been flying from Toronto to San Francisco and Los Angeles.

“We would like to thank the Toronto airport and community for supporting us,” said Virgin America Vice President of Planning and Sales Diana Walke. “We hope to return to YYZ at some point, but in the smaller Toronto-West Coast markets we were not able to stimulate demand as quickly as we would have liked. As a young and growing airline we’ve decided to instead focus on the immediate opportunities that DFW and other markets offer from our California base.”
