Direct Air Returns to Melbourne

9/27/2010  |  Melbourne, FL

MELBOURNE, Fla. (Sept. 27, 2010) – In celebration of its second year of service from Melbourne International Airport, Direct Air announced two separate discount fares for round-trip travel to Niagara Falls, N.Y. — gateway to Toronto.

The Fares Are Falling promotion offered $99* one-way fares with a $25 discount on round-trips. Fares had to be booked between Sept. 24-26.

Starting today, the airline is offering 50 percent off round trip flights booked between Sept. 27 and Oct. 9. Travel must be completed by June 30, 2011.

When booking, use promo code FLY50 to receive 50 percent off the lowest fare available at time of booking. To book your flight, go to or call 877-432-Direct (3473).

"We are very excited to be starting our second season from Melbourne to Niagara Falls/Toronto,” said Ed Warneck, Direct Air president.

Toronto, Canada’s largest city, is the region’s bustling cosmopolitan center featuring world-class shopping, dining, arts, professional sports and more. Just think, travel in comfort on a full-size jet for a short, non-stop flight to Niagara Falls, then head to the border and Toronto, which lies just beyond.

The jewel on Lake Ontario has some of the finest cuisine on the continent. AAA’s Going Places magazine raves, Toronto’s “diverse culinary offerings are truly a showstopper . . . with over 7,000 restaurants featuring such exotic cuisine as Afghani, Somali and Tibetan. You’ll also find impressive Italian, French, Greek, Fusion, Japanese and regional fare.”

Toronto’s art scene is one of the best, featuring a number of world-class exhibits, from the Royal Ontario Museum’s collection of Chinese temple art to Canada’s largest collection of fine art at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Love hockey? Toronto has two professional teams, the National Hockey League’s Toronto Maple Leafs and American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies.

Experience Toronto’s Chinatown district, one of the largest on the continent, or shop in Kensington Market, a quirky blend of shops, an artists’-and-writers’ colony and a working-class neighborhood, that has become one of the city’s most-photographed sites.

And you can take in the entire scene from atop the 113-story CN Tower downtown, the tallest free-standing structure in North America.

The sale offers also include travel from Canada and Niagara Falls to Melbourne. Warneck noted that 70 percent of the travelers flying from Niagara Falls International Airport hail from Canada.

Direct Air will resume its twice-weekly flights from Melbourne to Niagara Falls on Nov. 18, as well as its twice-weekly flights to Fort Myers-Punta Gorda, Fla.

“We’re looking forwarding to having Direct Air back at the airport, especially at such great fares,” said airport Executive Director Richard Ennis. “I’m sure that at those prices, seats on those flights won’t last long.”
