Oh! Canada – Toronto, Montreal
Most Visited From Hartsfield-Jackson
By DeAllous Smith
Do you speak English? Maybe you speak both languages.
Well, whether you speak a little French or a lot of English,
Canada remains an inviting country with plenty of art, culture,
sports and entertainment for every traveler. And, for the second
consecutive year, Toronto and Montreal remain the top destinations
for foreign flights from the world’s busiest airport.
Currently, Delta Air Lines and
its subsidiaries partnering with Air Canada serve 78 and 31
weekly international departing flights to Toronto and Montreal,
respectively. Sixty-eight flights departed for Toronto in 2007,
while 28 flew to Montreal.
“Toronto and Montreal offer the perfect summer getaway
for passengers seeking international travel close to home,”
said Hartsfield-Jackson Principal Management Analyst Alrene
Barr. “Canada’s breathtaking beauty, rich culture,
historic attractions and natural wonders will truly refresh
and rejuvenate the mind.”
Both cities offer unique attractions for visitors and residents.
Travelers can step back in time by visiting Old Montreal, a
vibrant community nestled along the St. Lawrence River. The
area includes cobblestone streets and historic 17th-and 18th-century
architecture. And, while in Toronto, visit Canada’s most
recognizable landmark, the CN Tower. The building, which until
recently was the tallest freestanding structure in the world,
features a glass floor observation deck, revolving restaurant
and Simulator Theatre.
Carrie Montgomery, a New York professional, was excited about
her recent trip to Canada. “Toronto is a very progressive
city with Old World charm,” said the departing traveler.
“It’s like traveling to Europe minus the jet lag.”
