Oh! Canada – Toronto, Montreal Most Visited From Hartsfield-Jackson

Parlez-vous français? 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.”
