SALT LAKE CITY — Nonstop flights to Toronto are now available at the Salt Lake City International Airport.

Air Canada re-entered the Salt Lake City market, officially, Saturday. Airport officials marked the occasion with a ribbon and cake cutting with the Air Canada crew along with a water cannon salute as the plane taxied the runway.

This is an addition to other nonstop services that have been added in the recent months.

Delta Airlines and Virgin Atlantic Airways launched nonstop service from Salt Lake City to London Heathrow Airport, which began May 1. The new route is seasonal until October.

Last year, Delta began offering direct flights to Amsterdam and in 2008, the airline began offering direct flights to Paris.
