Virgin America will have nonstop flights from Toronto to LAX and San Francisco

We have a lot of Canadian guests year round at our resort. Although most come from British Columbia and Alberta, we still have a sizable number of guests from Ontario that stay with us.

All of the guests from Ontario say they wish it was easier to fly here. Now Virgin America will be offering 1 nonstop a day from Toronto into LAX.

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is 120 miles from Palm Springs. Non rush hour, it is about a 2 1/2 hour drive into Palm Springs. Almost all of our guests from Europe, Australia, and Asia fly into LAX and drive here. I would also estimate about 10% of our American guests (especially those on the east coast) fly into LAX and drive here.

Here's the info:

Airline Grows Fleet; Announces New Service to Orlando and Intent to Serve Toronto This Summer

San Francisco – March 18, 2010 – Virgin America today announces network expansion plans that position the new airline for strong growth in 2010 and beyond. Today,...the airline announces its intent to serve Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) with daily flights from both LAX and SFO as early as June 2010. Coming on the heels of the Company’s new Department of Transportation-approved ownership structure, Virgin America is poised for major growth in 2010 – with six additional aircraft entering its fleet this year and three additional aircraft scheduled for the first quarter of 2011. By this time next year, the airline’s fleet will have grown by almost one-third.,,...

Also today, Virgin America will file an application with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) seeking authority to fly from the United States to Canada. If approved, this would become the airline’s first international destination. As set forth in the application, Virgin America, subject to receipt of all operating authority, plans to begin service as early as June 2010..."

We have always found the easier it is for guests to come to Palm Springs, the more often they come. For instance, once V Australia started flying into LAX, our Australian business has really grown.

I will expect our business from Ontario province will start growing even more now.

Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, unique vacation experience.
