These two worlds work in constant balance rather than collide. Scenic Ottawa focuses mostly on government and the nearby Ontario wilderness, while the metropolis of New York is all about fun and business in a city that never sleeps. The miracle of air travel has made the travel distance between these two points only 90 minutes, and thus competing regional carriers have made the trip more accessible financially.

Flying out of Ottawa

International flights from Ottawa are primarily handled by Macdonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW), or L'aéroport international Macdonald-Cartier. The airport also serves the community of Hull, just across the river in Quebec, and an airport so close to the hearts of both English and French Canada would have to be entirely bilingual. Most of the region follows suit, and caters to a diverse modern population, making travel and transportation points easy to find and navigate. The airport itself is considered a Point of Entry by Nav Canada and is therefore fully equipped with customs facilities and staffed by the Canadian Border services agency.

Airlines that Fly from Ottawa International Airport to New York

It's relatively easy to find cheap flights between these two cities, as they are both intrinsic parts of a sophisticated and busy transportation network that stretches across a national border and extends its global reach every day. Keep an eye out for services at both ends of your trip that are common sights for cross border travel. That includes currency exchanges, customs services that include American border preclearance, and plenty of off-duty shopping opportunities. Any of the following airlines can take you there.

  • United Airlines a Star Alliance partner with Air Canada, offers several direct flights on this route.
  • Porter a small airline virtually unheard of outside of Eastern Canada that operates several flights a day on this route with a stopover in Toronto Island Airport (YTC).

Commerce, commuters, and tourists make this trip frequently, and a detailed transportation network has evolved in response. Even those booking on a budget or at the last minute can find a ticket that suits their needs.

New York Airports Information

To experience the big city, start with choosing between one of three metropolitan airports. Your flight that begins in YOW can land in any one of these transit points, depending on your airline.

  • La Guardia (LGA), for passengers flying with Delta or United on direct flights.
  • John F. Kennedy (JFK) flights that have a stop in Toronto Pearson International land at this airport.
  • Newark Liberty (EWR) works with Porter Airlines flights.

Considering the vast network of local, regional and international traffic waiting at your destination, it's best to map out your travel plans. Holidays and vacation times are even busier than a normal day on the East Coast, so book your connecting flight, cruise ship, commuter train, or tour bus well in advance to avoid the crowds. Don't forget to keep an eye out for big ticket sporting or theatrical events that take place in New York and keep the flights full.
