A new international flight is taking off from Alamo City. Air Canada will offer nonstop service between San Antonio and Toronto beginning May 1, 2017.

Flights will run daily between the two destinations to maximize vacation and business opportunities. One-way tickets from San Antonio International Airport to Toronto Pearson International Airport are as low as $164.

The San Antonio service is one of six new nonstop flights between the U.S. and Canada announced this week. Air Canada will also add service from Memphis, Tennessee, and Savannah, Georgia, to Toronto. Dallas-Fort Worth and Denver will get new nonstop service to Montreal, and the airline's seasonal Phoenix-Vancouver route will become year-round. 

"Already, Canada is a top destination for American travelers so we are pleased to offer a greater choice of nonstop flights for the growing number of American visitors. And, along with providing convenient access to Canada's largest cities from major U.S. centers, these new services will also present customers attractive options to travel onward on our extensive domestic and international network," said Benjamin Smith, president of passenger airlines, in a release.
