Buffalo Airport beckons Ontario travellers with cost savings and convenience

Hamilton-Niagara residents are increasingly eyeing Buffalo Niagara International Airport as a budget-friendly and time-saving alternative to Toronto Pearson International Airport for their travel needs, according to a recent survey. Over half (55 per cent) of surveyed residents are likely to consider flying from Buffalo, located just across the Peace Bridge, thanks to potential cost savings and shorter wait times.

The survey, conducted by Leger on behalf of Buffalo Airport, polled 562 residents aged 18 and over in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton-Niagara areas. The findings, as reported by Pax Global Media, align with Buffalo Airport’s projection of exceeding one million Canadian passengers this year.

Pascal Cohen, senior marketing manager at Buffalo Airport, noted that the average time to a departure gate is just 12 minutes. With 35 per cent of their clientele being Canadian, the airport aims to provide a seamless travel experience with its 75 daily non-stop flights, including routes to popular destinations like New York and Orlando.

Buffalo Airport further entices potential Canadian travellers by highlighting cost savings opportunities. Opting for domestic U.S. flights avoids customs and immigration delays, along with international taxes and fees. Additionally, the airport boasts real-time traffic updates on its website, a feature touted as advantageous compared to the longer wait times sometimes encountered at Pearson.

Looking ahead, Buffalo Airport anticipates a passenger resurgence, aiming to reach 2019 levels by spring 2024. With the expansion of its flight network, including upcoming daily flights to Phoenix and Nashville, the airport seeks to offer Canadians even more convenient and cost-effective travel options.
