Via Rail

Air Canada and VIA Rail Reprotection Agreement

A couple days ago, I was flying from Kingston YGK to Las Vegas LAS, via Toronto YYZ. Unfortunately, there was very heavy fog in YGK, and a flight from YYZ was diverted to Ottawa YOW, and there were rolling delays at YGK. As a result of the delays, there wasn’t going to be enough time to catch my connection to LAS. I approached Air Canada, and they suggested I wait for a couple hours (thank goodness I didn’t, the flight I was originally scheduled to fly, around 5PM, didn’t fly out until close to midnight!). I remembered reading about the Air Canada/VIA Rail Reprotection Agreement, which allows Air Canada passengers to use VIA Rail on a segment if it is significantly disrupted.
