TORONTO — Visit San Antonio wants agents to know that it is committed to promoting the destination to the Canadian market, with arrivals from Canada at 60,000 annually and growing.
Earlier this week came news that Air Canada is suspending its five times weekly nonstop service between San Antonio and Toronto, with the last day of operations scheduled for April 28, 2019. Air Canada launched the route on May 1, 2017.
“While we were sad to learn of Air Canada’s shift in strategy, San Antonio remains a convenient destination with one-stop connections on WestJet (with a Delta codeshare), Air Canada, United and American Airlines,” says Casandra Matej, President & CEO, Visit San Antonio.
She adds: “Canadian visitors are important to San Antonio. Our commitment to welcoming more than 60,000 annual Canadians continues.
“We are excited how San Antonio’s unique blend of culture, history, cuisine and value have contributed to measured growth in Canadian visitor counts year after year.”
San Antonio celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2018 with an event-packed year. The popular city is home to the River Walk and the Alamo, plus attractions including Six Flags Fiesta Texas and SeaWorld San Antonio.
