    This news might be a few weeks old, but Air Canada recently announced limited weekend service from Toronto (Pearson) to Atlantic City starting May 22 - September 7th.

    The Casino Reinvestment Act will subsidize the service to the tune of $700,000, it works out to be about $75 per seat, or $90 CDN. :evillaugh

    Perhaps I'll make a few runs this summer at that price!

    This is what I couldn't understand about Atlantic City as I was going there once a year for the past few years. Air transport options into Atlantic City were very limited. For the longest time, I think Spirit (who doesn't serve any airports I can get to easily) was the only option, then finally United began flying into there, but at a hefty price on a little plane. I know Philly isn't a bad option with a train ride into the city, then another to the PHL airport, but the time savings alone for folks wanting to travel out of AC should keep AC a valid option as a home airport for the locals, let along allowing more visitors to come in. :goofy:

    Sorry, my bad, the cheapest "Tango" RT ticket is about $261 USD. The casino authority is providing a subsidy to Air Canada of $700,000 as an incentive to start flying, this subsidy works out to be $75 per seat. The aircraft is a DeHaviland 4 and seats 74.

    Come on down, there is a nice beach right near the border of Ventnor, it's about 20 blocks south of Tropicana.

    Total Rewards Air offers junkets to AC from Toronto. If you have decent play, it should be comped. Air, transfers and 3 nights hotel. If you don't play at a comp level, you can purchase the package. PM me if you need junket host info.

    Management of the AC airport was recently taken over by the Port Authority of NY and NJ, the same agency managing Newark, LaGuardia, and JFK. Unfortunately, rail service from the Philly airport to the main train station in Philly is once every half hour and from there, NJ Transit to Atlantic City is not frequent. Probably the best option would be to rent a car from PHL. Spirit seems to be focused on Florida and Myrtle Beach out of AC.

    Jerseyguy just made a post regarding new service to Miami and Nashville out of AC.
